Technology Expands Opportunity
We believe that information communication technology represents a powerful opportunity. We are innovating with technological tools to give Afghans greater access to knowledge and information, and to help both teachers and students develop 21st century skills.
Our Technology for Education program works to harness the potential and power of tech for learning and teaching in challenging environments through the following projects:
