Telenor doubled investments in development of Serbian society
One of Telenor’s long-term partners is UNICEF, which conducts on programmes of improving health services for the Roma community, as well as on the prevention of digital bullying. Telenor Group and UNICEF have recently signed a global partnership agreement that includes both financial support and access to a range of mobile technology solutions that will help advance children’s rights.
“UNICEF’s engagement with Telenor in Serbia is a model of Public–Private partnership, and in this case, an example on how collaboration with the ICT industry can result in innovative solutions for promoting, protecting and monitoring children rights with an equity focus lens”, said Michel Saint-Lot, UNICEF Representative in Serbia.
In cooperation with the local authorities, Internet clubs have been opened in seven Serbian municipalities. Internet Parks project has been continued for a sixth year in a row, with 14 currently active Internet Parks in six cities. Telenor supported the Museum of Yugoslav History in digitalization of its photo archive, which is now not only preserved, but easily accessible to everyone on the Internet. Telenor helped modernise education in 16 schools in Palilula municipality by introducing electronic grade books, and three schools in Belgrade and Mionica were provided with Internet access.
