We believe in a world where the Internet means opportunity. We care about its future.

Together with our global community we extend the Internet’s reach and protect its long-term well-being.

We help grow the Internet.

Nearly half the world’s population isn’t connected. We are committed to closing the digital divide by bringing together the people and technology needed to give everyone the access they want.

We make the Internet stronger.

We advocate for a secure, trusted and more resilient Internet. We defend the Internet from those who could make it less secure, less resilient, and less open.

We shape the Internet of the future.

We are a global movement that champions an Internet of hope, opportunity, and celebrates humanity. But Internet access is no longer a luxury. It is a virtual lifeline. Be part of the solution.

Impact Report 2020

Imagine living through 2020 without the Internet. 

As the world shut down, people finally understood the Internet is essential.

Our global community sprung into action. They worked, often quietly and behind the scenes, to bring the Internet to those who didn’t have it, and to make it stronger for those who did.

Our impact report shines a light on their inspiring stories – and shows the major shifts in how people starting using the Internet.

Self-determination means a lot of different things. Access to the Internet allows us the freedom to find the solutions we need to ensure a prosperous and just future for our people. The community network project is very important to helping us achieve our goal of total independence. We’re not only thrilled about the network, but that we had a team of experts supporting us all the way.
