I can't think of a higher leverage way to help someone in life than giving them internet access.

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

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

Our Mission

1.1 billion students can’t afford internet access. 67% are girls.

We exist to make it simple and transparent for anyone to sponsor internet access and laptops for students in need, allowing them to access global knowledge and equal opportunities.

Our focus areas in 2023

Every small step counts! Help us reach this milestone by donating 9$.

I donated to GiveInternet because the Internet, to me, is the best source of education. As their consultant on the Khan Academy Georgia project, I know the team well, I am aware of their enthusiasm and sense of responsibility and I am confident that they can find the best use of each penny donated.

The fact that the Give Internet team works with such transparency and dedication fills me with optimism. I feel like this is a group of passionate people who accumulated valuable experience in educational projects, saw a clear need for this project, developed a strategy and executed it all very professionally.

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.
