In terms of Education, the Foundation participates in the fight against illiteracy, by facilitating and encouraging education and vocational training where social conditions are obstacles. We promote digital tools as a driver for equal opportunity and our programs such as Digital School Kits, Women’s Digital Centre and Super Coders Scratch Programme are examples of our commitment.
