Welcome to Project Isizwe

Project Isizwe is an award winning, non-profit organisation which works with the public and private sector to bring internet access to low-income communities across South Africa.

We facilitate and enable the deployment of free internet hotspots within a walking distance in low-income communities for educational purposes, economic development and social inclusion.

The best means of addressing inequality in our communities is the deployment of public -or privately funded Free WiFi in low-income communities.
