USAID together with Cedro, through the CR3CE Alliance (Alliance for digital and financial services) and Internet for All, have signed a cooperation agreement to bring connectivity to 53 rural communities in Peru, achieving digital inclusion and social and economic development of thousands of Peruvian families.

At the signing of the agreement were Jene Thomas, USAID Director in Peru; Teresa Gomes, CEO of Internet for All, and Carmen Masías, Executive Director of Cedro.

The objective of the agreement is to promote the effective use of the internet in vulnerable rural communities, expanding connectivity, generating useful content and strengthening the capacities of the population.

USAID Director, Jene Thomas, said that digital inclusion is a key element to achieve social inclusion, especially in less favored and remote communities. For USAID, it is a priority to contribute to reducing the digital gap, especially during the pandemic situation in which there is greater dependence on digital tools to access information services and economic, education and health opportunities, among others.
