The benefits to the local communities are numerous, including access to information, informal learning to support existing education systems and employment.

Aside from the widely publicised socio-economic benefits of access to the internet, the on-net content provided at unlimited usage assists communities in furthering informal learning and skills development, empowering them to take charge of their own future.

In addition, Project Isizwe partners with champions from the local communities. These people take responsibility for the project, building relationships with government and supporting the technical components to ensure that there is no administrative or technical burden for the local government and municipal officials.
