Vodacom is working with the Department of Basic Education (DBE) to use ICT to expand learning opportunities for South Africa’s children. The focus is on teacher development and content. ICT literacy training is given to teachers at special Teacher Centres. We also offer a free online learning platform, e-School, to Grade 4 to 12 learners, and bursaries to students entering the fields of science and technology.
The success of this programme is premised on effective partnerships, not only with Government, but also other private sector companies like Microsoft, Intel, CISCO, Mindset and a range of educational publishers.
