Global Partners - ITU

In partnership with Cisco, ITU, the United Nations' leading agency for ICT development, has contributed to the expansion of Networking Academy in developing countries. Our partnership with ITU began in 2001 with a focus on enabling and extending access to ICT education and providing new opportunities for young people.


Partnership highlights:

  • The establishment of approximately 70 new Internet Training Centres (ITC) in developing countries
  • Ongoing support for the sustainability of ITCs
  • Targeted opportunities for women and girls through scholarships
  • Assessment of the impact of our joint initiatives

ITU continues to partner with Cisco to expand the ITC program upon request of developing countries and has embarked on a program to facilitate collaboration among ITCs to share best practices and expertise.
