Orange and OpenClassrooms (OpenClassrooms.com) have announced the signing of a broad-based partnership to provide digital training in Africa.
Several Orange subsidiaries in Africa are already working on the launch of training centres providing online courses via OpenClassrooms.
To rise to the challenge of the digital revolution in Africa, students and teachers alike need to be trained in the new technology.
“The digital revolution is an exceptional opportunity for Africa, both as an accelerator for development and for new sectors of activity where it can excel. Africa needs to train hundreds of thousands of young people in digital technology in order to seize this opportunity. Our partnership with OpenClassrooms once again illustrates Orange’s support in reaching the objective” explains Bruno Mettling, Orange Middle East and Africa Chief Executive Officer.
“We are proud to contribute to the development of digital skills in Africa via this unique partnership with Orange. Backed by the quality of the Orange network in Africa, our educational expertise will boost development and the creation of jobs” adds Pierre Dubuc, OpenClassrooms Chief Executive Officer.
