From 2011-2015, World Education partnered with the Alcatel-Lucent Foundation to implement the ConnectEd program in Australia, Brazil, Cambodia, China, France, India and Indonesia. ConnectEd leveraged technology to transform the learning, work and life outcomes of 25,575 disadvantaged youth, mostly girls and women. ConnectEd used a range of interventions to reach these goals, from scholarships, coaching, life skills and personal development courses, to school re-entry classes and nonformal education programs for out-of-school youth, job skills training, work placement, and ‘youth civic voice’ actions.See Lessons Learned from ConnectEd and How Technology Supports ConnectEd’s Work with Disadvantaged Youth.
