Chinese tech giant Huawei has teamed up with UNESCO’s Institute for Lifelong Learning (UIL) to spearhead a digital literary initiative in Morocco. 

Their goal is to enhance the digital skills of 10,000 Moroccan educators by 2025. This initiative, part of the Global Education Coalition and the Global Alliance for Literacy (GAL), aims to integrate technology effectively into literacy instruction post-COVID-19. 

“In light of the digital transformation, it is essential that literacy instruction leverages the full potential of technology,” said UIL director Isabell Kempf in a press release.  

The initiative also aims to empower women in tech. Huawei has committed to invest in training programs like “Women in Tech” and forge partnerships aimed at narrowing the gender gap in STEM fields.

“We are committed to working together to ensure that every individual, regardless of their context, has access to quality education that meets the challenges of the current digital era,” said Eric Falt, director of the UNESCO Regional Office for the Maghreb.

This educational endeavor supports Morocco's ambitions for technology-driven education aligned with Sustainable Development Goal 4.
