UNICEF & BT launch edu-communication project in Brazil
BT invests half a million pounds to help improve access and quality of education in remote and rural areas in China.
BT has today launched a joint initiative with UNICEF which will bring modern technology to schools in poor rural areas of China to improve access to high quality education.
BT is investing £500,000 (RMB5 million) to benefit up to 6,000 students and 1,700 teachers across four provinces - Qinghai, Ningxia, Yunnan and Jiangxi - where there are high-levels of digital exclusion.
The initiative represents the third phase of BT and UNICEF's Inspiring Young Minds programme, a £1.5 million global development partnership designed to bring education, technology and communication skills to children from disadvantaged backgrounds in South Africa, Brazil and China.
