The aim is to demonstrate the transformative potential of these technologies in improving teaching skills and providing education to children in developing countries, Dubai Cares said.

A delegation from the organisation has visited Kenya and Uganda to meet with officials, oversee installation of technological hardware and solar panels, and visit primary schools, where they met students and teachers benefitting from the programme.
