Nokia sponsors the project and developed the NokiaLife+ platform that delivers messages to teachers’ phones using minimal data.  The carrier fees to use the service in Abuja, Nigeria do not typically exceed 1USD per month.

The National Teachers Institute has partnered with UNESCO to implement the project on the ground and organize trainings and other informational and collaborative meetings with participating teachers.

The British Council developed the content for the English Teacher mobile service in collaboration with Nokia.  The content, tailored for use on mobile devices, is based on a comprehensive teacher training course that is specific for teachers working in sub-Sahara Africa.
