In today’s connected world, access to the internet should be considered an essential service, like water or electricity and just like water and electricity, it should be available to everyone, regardless of circumstance.

South Africa is lagging behind the world in internet accessibility. Not only does this failure damage the international reputation of our continent, it severely hampers economic development, both at an individual and a corporate level.

We want to give all South Africans the power to access information, education and jobs online and help to bridge the digital divide between South Africa and the developed world, which in turn will improve the sosio-economic status of the continent.
