TechInAfrica – The premium smartphone brand TECNO has announced a renewed partnership with UNHCR to make children refugees get the education they deserved.
This means the partnership will continue to take care of the needs of 10,670 children refugees in Uganda and Kenya.
Not only that, but TECHNO will also improve school infrastructure, provide learning materials for students and training for teachers, as well as catering to the students’ special needs.
Vivian Tan, UNHCR Representative ad interim in China commented on the partnership, “UNHCR welcomes this renewed partnership. COVID-19 has interrupted learning in many countries, and refugee children are no exception. Support from our private sector partners like TECNO is critical for UNHCR to continue and strengthen our efforts to support refugee learners and students to continue their education in this difficult time, and in the post-COVID time.”
“The Chinese private sector can play an important role in addressing the gaps in refugee education globally, including providing financial contribution, technology, and innovative solutions. We hope more Chinese private sector actors will be inspired by the partnership between TECNO and UNHCR.”
Stephen Ha, General Manager of TECNO said, “With the renewed partnership with UNHCR, we hope to continue our support in improving the learning conditions of refugee children. As part of our Corporate Social Responsibility, TECNO is committed to giving back to the community where we are present.”
“In the post-COVID time, we will amplify our efforts, especially using digital solutions to increase educational opportunity and enhance education quality for children in Africa so that they could receive better education and be better connected with the world.”
