British Asian Trust, a charity founded by Britain's Prince Charles, has partnered with  British Telecom (BT) for launching a three-year programme to use digital technology in order to improve education and life skills for adolescent girls in India.

With an aim to help improve the education opportunities, health and skills of around 500,000 young people, the programme will work in and around BT's India operations in Delhi, Gurugram, Bengaluru, and Kolkata.

Philip Jansen, Chief Executive of BT Group, said, "The world of work has changed enormously during the 30 years BT has been in India. We recognise that digital technologies have the potential to transform opportunities for this and future generations of girls."

"We're delighted to be partnering with the British Asian Trust to deliver sustainable social impacts, and hope to galvanise our team of 10,500 BT people based in India to support this programme," he further stated.

Richard Hawkes, Chief Executive, British Asian Trust, added, "At the British Asian Trust, we pride ourselves on taking an innovative approach to tackle development challenges. Brokering partnerships and promoting economic development through scalable solutions is at the heart of what we do. We're delighted to find a partner in BT who shares this vision and excited to be working together with them on a programme that will directly improve the lives of hundreds of thousands of adolescent girls across India."
