The Salesians of Don Bosco-Africa of the Great Lake are implementing ProFuturo Project in order to promote Digital Education in Rwanda and Uganda.
ProFuturo is an education programme launched in 2016 by Telefónica Foundation and “La Caixa” Foundation, whose mission is to narrow the education gap in the world by providing quality digital education for children in vulnerable environments in Latin America, Sub-Saharan Africa and Asia.
In line with Goal 4 of the United Nations’ 2030 sustainable development agenda on access to equitable and inclusive quality education for all, ProFuturo aspires to become a world reference for transformation and innovation in education, improving the education of millions of children through technology.
The hallmarks of ProFuturo, one of the largest digital education initiatives in the world, are quality, sustainability over time, and access to all corners of the world, whether in urban, rural or remote areas or conflict zones.
To achieve this, its education solution can be adapted to any environment and context both with and without an Internet connection. The ultimate aim is to deliver the best education to 10 million children in vulnerable areas by 2020, and to 25 million by 2030.215
