Guardian article reveals how BT is bringing internet access to Children's Villages in Africa
Last month, BT launched a major initiative - Connecting Africa - in partnership with SOS Children’s Villages, an international charity focusing on children at risk.
This project will bring broadband internet access to 20 of the charity's 'Children's Villages' in 12 African countries. It will benefit both the children living in the Children's Villages, and the charity as an organisation, helping it to run its operations more efficiently and better co-ordinate the facilities it runs.
A feature article appearing on The Guardian’s voluntary sector network website tells the story of this project, its aims and objectives – and the clever way technology is being used to bring the benefits of the internet to so many communities.
The Connecting Africa project is part of BT's Better Future programme, which is a commitment to use the power of communications to improve lives and ways of doing business.
