Nokia, Safaricom and UNICEF Partner To Connect Schools to the Internet Across Kenya

Nokia has come together with multiple stakeholders, including Safaricom, UNICEF and the Kenyan Ministries of Education and ICT, to connect close to 90 schools to the Internet in Kenya.

Both rural and disadvantaged urban settlements have benefitted from the initiative, which also supports digitization and digital literacy and the initiative aims to ‘connect the unconnected, with the ultimate goal of supporting the Kenyan Government’s plans to scale broadband connection to all schools by 2030.

The connected schools are spread across rural and informal urban settlements in Kenya, serving an estimated 32,670 students.
