The Education for All (EFA) movement is a global commitment to provide quality basic education for all children, youth and adults. At the World Education Forum (Dakar, 2000), 164 governments pledged to achieve EFA and identified six goals to be met by 2015. UNESCO is mandated to coordinate the collective efforts of governments, development agencies, civil society and the private sector to reach the EFA goals.

Nokia, UNESCO and the Pearson Foundation have all teamed up to enable people with similar interests to share ideas, connect and collaborate on solutions to EFA. The EFA Crowdsourcing Challenge is an initiative to develop various suggestions on how mobile communication can help achieve EFA goals.

The suggestions are generated by a dynamic interaction between education experts, teachers, students and software developers. These dynamic exchanges will lead to concrete projects that will then be developed and implemented either by Nokia or by participants in the challenge.

Each month will feature a separate EFA goal. The third month is devoted to finding solutions on how mobile communication can help achieve Youth and Adult Learning.
