Giga Annual Report 2021
Giga has now helped over 1 million learners get life-changing access to the Internet.
Using NFT artworks, we are building a community of supporters for the Giga initiative. Sales of the NFTs have so far raised over $700,000 for school connectivity.
Giga maps schools and their connectivity levels to help target investment to where it is most needed and to measure progress toward increasing Internet access. We have mapped the location of over 1 million schools on our open-source platform: www.projectconnect.world
Giga works with governments and advises them on building affordable and sustainable country-specific models for finance and delivery, subsidizing market creation costs and incentivizing private sector investment.
In partnership with industry, and based on the mapping results, Giga advises on the best possible technical solutions to provide schools with connectivity, and countries with safe, secure, reliable, fit-for-purpose infrastructure to support future digital development needs.
Giga works with a range of initiatives in UNICEF, ITU and beyond to ensure that students and teachers can access the devices, skills and content they need to make full use of connectivity.
