In today’s era of globalization and collaborative development, where partnering towards mutual goals is imperative, India and Africa are looking at common destinies to benefit the people of both the countries. While the success of such partnership can expand through trade, investment and industry, but it is education that crystallizes such development. Taking this forward, Amity University Online- India’s leading online global education platform where the use of education technology is the key driving force has partnered with Pan Africa e-network Project- an ICT (Information and Communications Technology) project. The vision is to bring internationally benchmarked expertise in areas of education, research and training by setting up world-class education institutions in Africa.
Amity University Online has so far played a significant role in carrying forward the mission of the former President of India, Late Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam, who during the inaugural session of the Pan-African Parliament held in Johannesburg in 2004, proposed in his address to connect all the 53 nations of the African Union by a satellite and fibre-optic network, which would provide effective communication for Tele-education, Tele-medicine & Video Conferencing services and also support e-Governance, e-Commerce, infotainment, meteorological services etc.
01 Digitally connect India with all the 53 countries of the African Union through a dedicated fiber optic & under-sea cable network
02 Provide Tele-education, continuing Medical Education for doctors, video conferencing & e-commerce facilities using a dedicated satellite in the African counterparts & expand internationally through Amity’s existing infrastructure & e-network facilities
e-network project has brought a substantial impact in the African counterparts
