“Harnessing technology and changing education models is imperative,” Giannini said as she addressed a side event about the UNESCO-Huawei “Technology-enabled Open Schools for All” project at the COP27 climate change conference in Egypt.

Giannini said the partnered project “can help countries to rethink and build a new generation of schools and learners”, as young people were increasingly faced with the challenges and risks caused by climate change.

The event, dedicated to a partnership developed by the UNESCO Education sector with Huawei and the Ministries of Education of Egypt, Ethiopia and Ghana, also presented preliminary results of the open schools in the three African countries.

“Aiming to leave no one behind in the digital world, enabling equity and quality in education is one of four focused domains in Huawei TECH4ALL digital inclusion initiative,” said Catherine Du, Head of Huawei's TECH4ALL program

She added, “Moreover, we believe that ICT is a key enabler for a greener world with approaches like reducing carbon emission, renewable energy, circular economy and conserving nature with technology.”

Working with more than 20 different partners, TECH4ALL’s education program has helped connect schools, promoting digital skills, and supporting STEAM curriculum to K12 students and teachers in more than 400 schools globally as well as unemployed young people and elders.

Commenting on the value of the UNESCO-Huawei project, Dr. Reda Hegazy, Egyptian Minister of Education and Technical Education said it “is closely aligned with the general orientation of the needs and issues of the Egyptian state”.

Since 2021, the Egyptian Ministry of Education and Technical Education, in cooperation with UNESCO and Huawei, have organized several meetings to prepare and review project documents.

“I would like to emphasize the critical need for collaborative efforts among all stakeholders to ensure not only equitable access to educational resources, but also to fulfill social obligations towards students,” Dr. Hegazy said.

In Egypt alone, the UNESCO-Huawei joint project aims to empower 950,000 teachers, principals, and supervisors to more effectively integrate ICT into their daily practice. Ultimately, 23 million students at the basic education level in the country are expected to benefit from an enhanced and more equitable digital learning experience.

Huawei has operated in Africa for more than 20 years, helping connect more than 1 billion people in more than 50 African nations, as part of the company’s overarching commitment to help bridge the digital divide and enrich people’s lives.
