Education is the most powerful tool for reducing inequality and building the foundations for sustainable growth. The digital environment has opened a world of opportunities for learning and teaching.
ICTs are currently the central focus of education transformation and Telefónica is a strategic ally in advancing this process of change.
The digital education project for disadvantaged children and adolescents, funded by the Fundación Telefónica and the ”la Caixa” Banking Foundation, have placed more than two million young boys, girls and adolescents in schools throughout Latin America and Africa.
ProFuturo, a initiative inspired by Pope Francisco offers a comprehensive education solution that enables teachers to continue to make progress in their professional work and to manage their classrooms, whilst improving learning. All this regardless of whether or not there is connectivity.
César Alierta, president of the Fundación Telefónica: “Millions of children in the world don’t have access to any type of education and we can't leave them behind. The goal of ProFuturo is to take advantage of technology to close the education gap”.
