OUR COMMITMENT TO PROTECTING CHILDREN
Our business is dedicated to expanding access to technology which connects and transforms people’s lives in a responsible manner. We are committed to educating children on the productive and safe use of digital technology, and the people who raise them day in and day out: their parents, teachers and caregivers.
Digital literacy, education and the reduction of poverty are significant SDGs. Our goal is to leave no one behind in the global Digital Revolution, including children - the digital citizens of the future – so that they can safely enjoy all the benefits the digital world brings.
Through our Regional Flagship Program for Protecting Children known as ConectateSegur@, our volunteers and partners work with local governments and educational institutions to train teachers and parents on the risks as well as the safe and productive use of technology using materials and tools prepared by subject matter experts. Through our digital centers in schools and communities, we also prepare children and adolescents for higher education, future jobs and the changes that we will experience as a result of artificial intelligence by teaching them robotics, programming and coding skills.
Between 2019 and 2023, we aim to reach: 700,000 children and adolescents, 70,000 teachers and 200,000 parents and caregivers with our programs. To date, we have reached 368,138 children and adolescents, 20,373 teachers, 44,431 parents and caregivers.
We leverage our network, resources and skills with UNICEF’s subject matter expertise on Child Rights and network of local stakeholders to maximize positive impacts on the lives of children and adolescents.
