Connect To Learn
Connect To Learn was conceived to address some of the challenges relating to secondary education access and quality. The aim with this global education initiative is to scale up access to quality secondary education, in particular for girls, by providing scholarships and bringing ICT to schools in remote, resource-poor parts of the world, over mobile broadband. Around the world 62 million girls are not in school. When a girl receives a quality education, she is more likely to earn a decent living, raise a healthy, educated family, and improve the quality of life for herself, her family, and her community. To date the initiative is launched in 22 countries and benefiting over 76,000 students and engaging 16 mobile operators.
