Additionally, 570 teachers facilitated the seamless integration of the platform into their classrooms, ensuring its widespread and impactful implementation.
For decades, World Vision has been at the forefront of initiating transformative projects and programs aimed at nurturing the holistic development of children, while simultaneously empowering communities to create safe, secure, and healthy environments for all families. Central to the success of these initiatives is the organization’s commitment to forging strategic partnerships with both local and international entities to bring its vision to life.
In 2018, World Vision joined forces with Telefónica Foundation and la Caixa Foundation to launch ProFuturo, a groundbreaking digital education program. The primary objective of ProFuturo is to bridge the digital gap among Filipino learners in underserved communities in the Philippines. Leveraging cutting-edge technology, the program seeks to promote equal opportunities by providing high-quality education to students, empowering teachers, and enabling school principals to meet the challenges of the 21st century.
The ProFuturo program continues to stand as a beacon of hope, empowering children and educators alike with the tools and knowledge needed to thrive in an increasingly digital world, and World Vision remains a steadfast leader, committed to its mission of creating a future where every child has the opportunity to reach their full potential.
