Description of Scale and Reach
From 2010 to date, up to 210 schools in Nigeria have gained access to ICT via 21 British Council and Badiliko Digital Hubs.

The curriculum has also been made available to different stakeholders - such as the the Ministries of Education in Nigeria and Ghana - who are planning teacher training.
