“Used correctly and guaranteeing universal accessibility, digital education can be a game changer for children who have been left behind. It can connect them to a world of opportunity and provide them with the skills they need to thrive in a digital world.” César Alierta, President of ProFuturo.
Telefónica Foundation has been working since 1998 to be the catalyst of social inclusion in the digital era. With this vision, it seeks to improve people’s development opportunities through inclusive projects with a digital soul and a global vocation, using education and training as the main vehicles for social transformation. It develops educational, cultural, employability and volunteer projects that meet the challenges of the digital world, so that no one is left behind.
Present in 41 countries in Europe, Latin America, Africa and Asia, during 2019 it reached more than 11.8 million people through its programmes, including ProFuturo.
As part of Telefónica Foundation’s commitment to innovation and educational quality, and with the assistance of “la Caixa” Foundation, the ProFuturo programme was created in 2016 to facilitate access to quality digital education to children in vulnerable environments.
