The partnership builds on the partnership between Telenor Group and UNICEF, which leverages Telenor’s digital platforms to reduce inequalities, while enhancing children and young people’s skill for the digital future.
According to Joachim Rajaram, the telco company’s Chief Corporate Affairs Officer, the partnership is made possible thanks to the vision shared by both parties to protect children’s rights and reducing inequalities through the positive use of technology and accessibility to the internet.
To commemorate the partnership, both parties held a virtual dialogue to highlight the issues that children face during the COVID-19 pandemic and drive better understandings on the role of education and technology in their wellbeing.
