School in Cameroon Acquires Internet Access for First Time Ever

-

On Saturday, UNICEF announced that a school in Cameroon had acquired Internet access for the first time ever. The video released with the announcement shows a 12-year-old girl who –like 346 million young people around the world– has never had Internet access.

In addition to going online, UNICEF provided the young students with educational applications on tablets in order to improve their learning skills. “When they reach high school, our students will be the best in the district,” one of the teachers said.

In 2015, a UN report declared that 90 percent of people living in poor nations lacked access to the Internet. The report stressed that access to the Internet has “the potential to serve as a major accelerator of development.”
