The most cost-efficient way to boost socioeconomic growth? Connectivity, GiveInternet.org would tell you.

Study revealed that a year after joining the project a quarter of the students had better grades.

...Many reasons behind the disparity but according to GiveInternet they all boil down to affordability.

Frequently Asked Questions

A personal laptop, an Internet connection throughout their years in school, free access to educational resources, mentorship from the team, and training opportunities. 

You control how your money is spent. You choose what to sponsor (Internet access, laptops, or both), you can choose the country you want to sponsor, and you can allocate a portion of your donation to our administrative expenses (staff salaries, marketing and growth costs, etc.). Whatever's left is spent on Internet fees and laptop costs for students in our partner country. Each month you will receive updates with student achievements, bank statements and transparency reports.

We collaborate with partners on the ground - NGOs who work with high school students in need. Once a student is equipped with a laptop, local internet service providers equip the family with Internet access upon the family's request and with the help of our local partner if needed. Your monthly donations cover the Internet fees throughout the student's years in school. 

Of course! At any time, you can log into your account and modify or cancel your donation or payment methods. Normally we process monthly transactions on the 5th of every month. We will send you an email if there's an issue with your donation so be on the lookout.
