    Through ProFuturo, ”la Caixa” Foundation and Telefónica Foundation strive to narrow the world's educational divide by providing the children living in vulnerable environments in Latin America, the Caribbean, Africa and Asia with a good quality digital education.

    This universal programme places technology at the service of society to ensure such children have the same opportunity as others to benefit from a good quality education, wherever they are and whether or not they are on-line.


    There can be no progress without education. That's why we focus on developing communities with problems in accessing good quality education.

    We promote local alliances with international institutions, companies and agents that wish to help us provide a better education for children, young people and teachers throughout the world.


    The goals of this educational programme are as follows:

    • Promote education through digital content and advanced modular teaching-learning methods adapted to each particular environment and context.

    • Improve teacher training and provide them with the best tools to enhance the quality of their classrooms.

    • Personalise each student's learning.

    • Create accessible educational content for young people and children with disabilities.

    • Use technology to eliminate educational barriers and the digital divide in the world.

    • Become a global benchmark in educational transformation and innovation by improving the education of millions of children all over the world.


    To date, we've started educational projects in 40 countries in different parts of the world:

    • Africa

    • Latin America

    • The Caribbean

    • Asia


    Over the years, ProFuturo has been given numerous awards and distinctions for its work in educational innovation, including the WISE Prize, which it received in 2021, becoming the first Spanish project to be given this prestigious award for educational innovation.
