Connect To Learn deployments

Connect To Learn is a global education initiative launched in 2010 by the Earth Institute of Columbia University, Millennium Promise and Ericsson. The aim is to provide access to quality secondary education by providing scholarships and bringing ICT to schools in remote, resource-poor parts of the world.

Ericsson achieves this by using mobile broadband and cloud technologies, as well as providing child protection platforms, needs based pedagogical material, student and teacher devices, teacher training programs and all supporting services.

To date, the initiative is launched in 23 countries, benefiting over 80,000 students and involving 16 mobile operators.

In 2016, the impact of Connect to Learn was clearly evident in the largest deployment to date, deployed in Myanmar, as a unique public-private collaboration with a range of partners which is breaking new ground in building capacity for the program.

Connect To Learn implements ICT in schools often in resource poor settings to enhance the quality and access to teaching and learning resources in a safe, cost effective, and user friendly way. The program uses the power of mobility, broadband and cloud solutions to provide students and teachers with access to the libraries and information sources the world has to offer while connecting schools to schools, students to students, and teachers to teachers around the globe to support collaborative learning, social awareness, and cultural sharing.

We work with the Whitaker Peace & Development Initiative (WPDI) to help youth affected by conflicts and violence to foster safer and more productive communities in Africa, Latin America, and the United States. Founded in 2012 by artist and humanist Forest Whitaker, UNESCO Special Envoy for Peace and Reconciliation and UN Advocate for Children Affected by War, WPDI provides holistic support to groups of young women and men who are empowered as leaders who can bring positive change in their communities.
