about the 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 high school students with Internet access, laptops, a wide range of educational resources from our EdTech partners, and training on media literacy, financial literacy and online education. 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. It's local analogue, www.charte.ge, was founded in 2017 by our sister organization - Educare Georgia. Educare is an educational nonprofit organization on a mission to provide free access to world-class education to anyone in Georgia. Through Charte.ge, up to 1000 families have received Internet access and laptops in Georgia thanks to individual donations from 2000+ monthly donors and additional support from corporate sponsors.

If I want to try it, what should I do?

GiveInternet.org recently acquired a 501(c)3 nonprofit status and will start accepting donations soon. Leave us your email and we'll let you know when we launch (https://bit.ly/384DvVk). We'd be delighted to see you among our monthly supporters.
