ATOS/GIZ 2021-2022 ICT 4 Inclusion Challenge for Africans

Atos and GIZ kick-start their cooperation by setting up this joint innovation challenge. The goal is to support digital innovations aimed at improving access to education for persons with disabilities in Africa. To this end, both parties signed a Memorandum of Understanding at the Global Accessibility Awareness Day. Watch GIZs CEO Tanja Gönner and Atos CEO for Central Europe Udo Littke talk about the aim of the partnership.

Access to education is one of the greatest barriers to inclusion for children, young persons, and adults with disabilities in Africa. The COVID-19 pandemic has amplified this situation. Digital innovations can help to overcome this challenge by removing barriers to education for persons with disabilities.
