Information about the project
We, América Móvil and the Carlos Slim Foundation, are committed to using technology and our resources to reduce the digital divide and thus help transform the quality of life of our people. Aprende.org is a free access platform, developed by the Carlos Slim Foundation with the purpose of removing barriers, motivating inclusion, and promoting quality education and training for all, without frontiers. Consequently, anyone connected can have access to the same content no matter if they live in a rural area or a high income neighborhood in a city. América Móvil has worked with the Carlos Slim Foundation to take "free access" one step ahead, by providing their users in Mexico, Panamá and Dominican Republic the oportunity to use the platform free of data charges in its networks. The platform offers a diversity of 182 courses regarding all levels of education, employment, economic development, justice, environment, culture, migrants counseling, sports, health, road safety, human development and humanitarian aid. As our continuous effort to keep the platform content updated we have been revising, and developing new courses; while Carlos Slim Foundation has signed cooperation agreements with several organizations, such as, Khan Academy, Coursera, Udacity and the MIT Open Courseware for translating into Spanish their contents and making them available for Spanish-speaking public. All of these, contributes the fourth Sustainable Development Goal of the United Nations Organization to guarantee an inclusive, equitable and quality education, and promoting learning opportunities for all, while generating potential that enhances the integral development of people, and their communities.
