Educated girls and women are likely to live healthier and happier lives, marrying later, having few children, being empowered and becoming drivers of the micro-economy. Too often however families live in rural areas beyond the reach of connectivity. Access to digital education services & content, especially in rural, unconnected areas can improve education outcomes in maths, literacy & life skills. The Digital Divide remains an important reason why education as a whole but especially for girls is lacking across large parts of the world. Satellite connectivity is supporting the education of girls and the iMlango project in Kenya that impacts 78,864 girls in 205 primary schools is one such example. This session will explore the opportunities and challenges associated with expanding educational opportunities through satellite connectivity to rural schools.
