HundrED has not validated this innovation
Why did you create this innovation?
Nearly 4 billion people – mostly women and poor, rural communities – are excluded from today’s online revolution. They are missing out on academic and economic opportunities, global public debates, democratic empowerment, global knowledge, social and cultural exchange.
By providing connectivity, we empower individuals to improve the quality of their lives and their communities.
How does your innovation work in practice?
GiveInternet.org is a nonprofit platform where anyone can sponsor Internet fees and laptops for high school students in need.
Our platform ensures that supporting connectivity through online recurring donations is simple and transparent. It takes a minimum of $1 and a few clicks to register as a donor. Donors receive monthly transparency reports with detailed costs, success stories and more. Each project, donor, partner, cost and the story of each student is documented on the website.
To help them realize their full potential, our project equips underprivileged students with Internet access, laptops, and a wide range of educational resources. We also constantly mentor our students online on how to navigate the Web safely and efficiently.
How has it been spreading?
GiveInternet.org is a US-based nonprofit and an international platform. Our team, based in Georgia, Europe, initially built a local platform in 2017, www.charte.ge. Through the Georgian website, we attracted up to 5000 donors and up to 2000 students have Internet access and laptops.
