“Through our global partnership we have a common ambition to reduce inequalities globally, by developing the digital skills of children and young people, and with a special focus on the inclusion of girls. Together, we are working to make sure that the technology contributes to reduce rather than increase inequalities. This is hugely important to children, and in particular the girls that Plan wants to reach,” Partapuoli adds.
“At Telenor, we have seen at first-hand how our partnership with Plan International has helped make a difference. We are therefore very pleased that we have now agreed to also work together for the coming period. Plan recognizes the opportunities that modern communications technology can bring, and like us at Telenor they want to see those opportunities become available to all. We trust that together with Plan International, we can achieve our collective mission of enabling children and youth, especially girls, in our markets to develop skills for a safe and promising digital future,” says Cecilie Heuch, Executive Vice President and Head of Group People.
