Netex and ProFuturo guarantee quality education and the future of children in the third world
ProFuturo educational and training programme, joint initiative of Telefónica Foundation and “La Caixa” Banking Foundation, aims to help ten million children in the next five years, facilitating access to quality and equitable education.
The project is bringing technology and digital content to Latin America, Sub-Saharan Africa and Asia. Netex has been selected by ProFuturo to develop educational content on skills and basic competences for everyday life. The digital contents will be distributed to each of the students through the infrastructures and technologies (Internet connectivity, tablets, routers, laptops…) also provided by ProFuturo.
It is estimated that some 50 million children today lack any access to education. ProFuturo has already launched projects in more than ten countries in Africa and Latin America and has successfully implemented its educational model in 326 schools through about 1,500 teachers.
