UNICEF and Telenor Group recently announced an agreement to extend their long-running global partnership for another three years - through 2021.
Launched in 2014, the partnership delivers large-scale global projects which leverage Telenor's digital platforms to reduce inequalities and enhance children and young people's skills for the digital future.
As part of the global partnership with UNICEF, Telenor Group, with its operations across eight markets in Scandinavia and Asia, has contributed with financial, technical and in-kind support, complementing UNICEF's deep expertise, widespread on-ground contributions and knowledge of the countries covered by the partnership. The three-year extended agreement will continue previously funded UNICEF projects, including digital birth registration and digital skills building programmes. It will also explore and identify new initiatives that leverage Telenor's networks and digital platforms.
The announcement was made at Telenor Group's headquarters in Fornebu, Norway.
