Since 2014, Telenor and UNICEF have worked together through a global partnership, which was extended by three years in 2018. This second extension agreement means the partnership will continue until 2025.
Telenor and UNICEF have collaborated on a range of issues, including youth economic empowerment and skills-building, online safety and digital resilience, digital inclusion of vulnerable/outlier groups, as well as climate and environment.
“We are very pleased that our global partnership with UNICEF has been extended by another three years. During the years that we have worked together we have seen a tremendous development in the ways children and young people are embracing digital technology. At the same time, we know that there are many who miss out on the opportunities that connectivity offers. Others are victimized online. In UNICEF we have a partner with global presence and key insights into what it takes to help children survive, thrive, and fulfil their potential in life. We are looking forward to the next chapter in our joint efforts,” says Zainab Hussain Siddiqui, Vice President Sustainability at Telenor.
