Airtel Internet for Schools project

Airtel Kenya CEO, Adil El Youssefi, said the telecommunications giant is targeting a record 1 million students in the country.

He said the aim of the project is to keep students in schools updated and knowledgeable on current issues in all fields of knowledge, adding the Airtel is committed to the project.

"With our Internet for Schools project, we aim to bridge the digital divide that exists in communities and schools without access to Internet," said Mr El Youssefi.

"It is for this reason that we're proud to continue providing this free connectivity to more and more schools.

"This is a timely action because of the changes in the education system with more students turning to the Internet for learning resources."

The project is being executed in partnership with major foundations such as the Chandaria Foundation and the Global Peace Foundation.
