Guinea 7,000 pupils in Digital Schools by the end of 2016

Our Digital Schools programme continues to be rolled out in Africa. In October 2016, the programme arrived in Guinea to provide children with better access to education.

In Dabis, Kankan, Kouriah, Coyah, and Dubrika, pupils will be able to access educational content without an internet connection thanks to digital kits. Through these kits, they will have access to a library containing thousands of works, and be able to do maths exercises, French exercises, and more...

In each new school, volunteers from the Foundation will lead demonstrations. These Orange Guinea employees are patrons for the schools in which the kits have been implemented. The schools are often in towns or villages where they used to board.

All the stakeholders are committed to making sure that pupils succeed: local authorities, parents and, of course, the teaching staff.

The kits will be distributed over the coming weeks in the forest region and in Lower Guinea. A total of 30 schools have been equipped in this way, and over 7,000 pupils will see their education improve.
