The Laboratoire Information Education et Novation (LIEN) is a computer lab that offers training in basic computer science, bureautics and Internet use. As the first ever introduction of computers to the community – it has trained virtually everyone in Plaisance du Sud – bar the ones who have lived somewhere else before – who can now use a computer. The LIEN is based on peer-to-peer training with a focus on teenagers. It also trains the students in the Plaisance Avenir program from age 5.
