Microsoft will increase access to computer science education and digital skills training for 5 million youth across 2 years in all 28 EU member states. This will be accomplished through a holistic approach that directly empowers both educators and youth. Furthermore, we are refocusing our non-profit-led training efforts in 21 EU member states by aiming to reach at least 50% girls.
