Please tell our readers a bit about the efforts Microsoft is making towards digital learning.
Microsoft as a company is focussed on bringing the benefits of Information Technology (IT) to the underserved community around the world by supporting non-profits that are providing basic IT skills for economic and social empowerment. Operating in over 101 countries, with over 1000 non-profits, we have now supported about 33250 initiatives. Since its launch in 2003 with a five-year, US$250 million commitment, the Partners in Learning programme has touched the lives of more than 80 million students, teachers, and education policymakers in 101 countries.

How do we go beyond IT training?
