HP will provide 10 million students and teachers with resources

The three-year education partnership with Girl Rising will see technology and curriculum provided to schools in need in the US, India and Nigeria.

The project expands on HP’s existing partnership with the global campaign group and is the latest in its global commitment to enable better learning outcomes for 100 million people by 2025.

Christina Lowery, chief executive officer of Girl Rising, comments: “We are thrilled to once again partner with HP – a company committed to social impact and at the forefront of innovation in the classroom – to radically scale our efforts to ensure girls everywhere have the knowledge, skills and confidence to decide their own futures.

“We are devoted to this case because it is a proven catalyst: giving girls access to education and opportunity is the most effective factor in transforming pressing global issues including health, poverty, and climate change.”

HP prides itself on bringing out the best of humanity through the power of technology. Girl Rising is doing groundbreaking work to empower women and girls around the world

According to HP, more than 130 million girls around the world currently lack access to education with women accounting for two thirds of the 750 million adults lacking basic literacy skills.

Last month, HP and UN Women signed an agreement during the UN General Assembly to advance education, entrepreneurship and digital learning for women and girls in Senegal, South Africa, Nigeria, Democratic Republic of Congo, and Morocco.

Michele Malejki, global head of Social Impact Programs at HP, adds: “HP prides itself on bringing out the best of humanity through the power of technology. Girl Rising is doing groundbreaking work to empower women and girls around the world.

“This has never been more important, and our collaboration will equip millions of both students and teachers with the curriculum and technology they need to thrive.”
