AFRIKANET, AIRTI and Save The Children partnered from 2012 to 2014 to provide Internet to pupils in need for a better education in Côte d’Ivoire.
About Save The Children:
Save the Children supports education programs that are proven to promote learning in school and in the community. It works to influence global and national policy to improve children’s access to quality education, from pre-school care through to adulthood. Additionally, Save the Children delivers education programs to reach children who are out of school.
EAC – Educate A Child – and Save the Children have partnered to provide quality basic education to out of school children affected by conflict in Côte d’Ivoire and Thailand/Myanmar, and those who are the most marginalized in Ethiopia. In Côte d’Ivoire, the EAC and Save the Children partnership will provide 28,800 out of school children in areas with very limited access to education with educational opportunities.
AFRIKANET provided an Internet connection VSAT (Very Small Aperture Terminal) to build this project with ARTI in Côte d’Ivoire. From 2012 to 2014 we implemented VSAT equipments on 3 different sites spread across the country:

Our VSAT equipment is composed of different dish sizes from 1.2m to 1.8m, an iDirect X3 modem, 3 or 5 watt BUC, LNB, and other cables and connectors. Additional products might be added if needed such as Wlan products: WiFi and Wimax devices.
Our commitment to improve the education system in Cote d’Ivoire enabled children to get a better education, be more open-minded, more attentive to the world and fulfil their dreams. Save The Children had also been able to communicate within all its worldwide offices by exchanging data, file transferring, browsing and videoconferencing. AFRIKANET is proud to help African countries to develop themselves with a better education.
