    April 29: Initiative Launched to Boost Literacy in Morocco 

    The announcement of the program's launch in Rabat, Morocco

    UNESCO, the Moroccan government, and Huawei have launched a new initiative in Morocco to boost the digital skills of 10,000 literacy teachers by 2025. Although digital skills are a key to literacy teaching in the twenty-first century, many literacy educators have limited ability to use technology for impact in their teaching.

    The launch event was followed by a four-day workshop where literacy experts and educators joined representatives of academia and civil society to adapt existing training modules to the Moroccan context. As part of a process that is still underway, participants developed general guidelines for contextualizing the training modules in addition to translating the lessons into Arabic and devising an action plan for promoting the new curriculum. The modules will be integrated into a literacy training course that will be available through the Institute for Training in Literacy Professions (IFMA), a hybrid teaching and training portal developed by ANLCA.

    Huawei has long been committed to promoting digital literacy worldwide, including Seeds for the Future, a flagship training program that has benefitted 2.8 million people since its launch, and Huawei's TECH4ALL DigiTruck, which provides free training in digital skills.
