Connected Communities: Delivering Sustainable Broadband and Education to Sub-Saharan Africa

Sub-Saharan Africa has the world’s fastest-growing population. Today, over 1 billion people live in the region, with predictions of the population doubling by 2050. It also has one of the largest youth populations, with up to 70% of the population being under the age of 30. 49% of primary school aged children will probably never attend school across Africa currently, and fewer than 20% of African women complete their education. This directly impacts employment rates, where up to 60% of Sub-Saharan Africa’s unemployed are between the ages of 15 and 24.

Avanti’s vision is to connect communities and schools across the Middle East and Africa and improve educational outcomes for students and young adults through its high speed connectivity and eLearning programs. Our, ECO initiative, is a radical technical and commercial proposition that provides broadband internet connectivity to millions across Africa. ECO combines Avanti’s and Newtec’s innovative world leading technology to provide sustainable broadband to schools whilst serving with Wi-Fi hotspots.

By introducing sustainable connectivity and eLearning programs, we will help grow communities to develop, prosper and create connected futures, enabling the potential of millions across Africa.

Avanti and Newtec will introduce to you the ECO initiative and how we, together, can make a positive change in Africa.
