children around the world could not access remote learning during COVID-19 school closures.1
We have to reimagine education.
COVID-19 has shown that not having a connected, digitally enabled infrastructure affects a country in many ways, including reduced economic outputs; and those most affected are the most vulnerable children. Without remedial action, the World Bank estimates a loss of $10 trillion in earnings for this generation, driving countries off-track to achieving development goals.2
Connect with us now to reimagine education and bridge the digital divide – so that millions more children can benefit from connectivity.3
