I came accross the Discovery Channel‘s Global Education Partnership. This is a very interesting project sponsored in part by the Coca-Cola Africa Foundation, Chevron‘s Economic and Community Development program, along with many other companies and individuals. In their own words:
In collaboration with local educators in underserved countries, Discovery Channel Global Education Partnership harnesses the educational power of television by creating Learning Centers – versatile community resources where students, teachers and entire communities can access and share information.
The Global Education Partnership provides equipment, training, and program development to communities in underserved countries. Unlike many other programs, this one is structures to provide both short therm and long term resources and support to all the community where the education centers are established. It is good to see that television is being used to do good and to bring educate.
