Sub-Saharan Africa


We are working with the governments of Rwanda, Kenya, Sierra Leone, Niger, and Zimbabwe to map school connectivity in real-time, and develop financial models to make connectivity affordable and sustainable.

The Learning Passport is a new solution designed to close the learning poverty gap, a digital library of teaching and learning resources covering the entire primary and secondary education curriculum. It opens up great opportunities for learning online improving the education of millions of children. 

The Learning Passport was founded by UNICEF, Microsoft, and The University of Cambridge to address the challenges faced by millions of children and youth to access continued, quality education in multiple settings, 24/7.
