Avaya Enables Learning Across Africa as 250M Children Lose Access to Physical Classrooms

Avaya (NYSE: AVYA), a provider of solutions to enhance and simplify communications and collaboration, is helping to stem the loss of school facilities to as many as 250 million children across Africa by enabling students to stay on track with their studies using Avaya Spaces™, the company said.

Avaya Spaces, the all-in-one video collaboration app for the digital workplace, changes the way works gets done. It helps bring together distributed groups of people instantly with immersive work spaces where they can message, meet, share content and manage tasks from a browser or mobile device, and provides an easy, secure and effective way to collaborate in the cloud.

Earlier this year, Avaya Spaces was offered for free to educational institutions worldwide, giving them all the meeting and team collaboration features they needed to keep students learning and curriculums on track.

With Avaya Spaces, African schools such as Icon International School in Ghana, Charter College in South Africa, and Waldorf Woodlands in Kenya, have kept students safely engaged in their education by using the app to create virtual classrooms that can be accessed securely from anywhere on any device.
