This program began in 2006 with the aim of contributing to the reduction of the digital divide of children and young people studying in public schools in the distribution areas, through a strategic alliance with the “Union of Entrepreneurs for Technology in Education (UNETE) “.

The idea was to equip schools in the distribution areas that Gas Natural Fenosa México operates in.

This programme aims to contribute to raising the educational level and provide children in Mexico with the same opportunities by incorporating the benefits of computers and the internet in primary and secondary education across the country.
