Giga expands its reach to 30 countries, advancing universal school connectivity
Giga, the global initiative to connect every school in the world to the Internet by 2030, announced today that it is now operational in 30 countries. Led by UNICEF and ITU, Giga provides open-source connectivity solutions and technical support to governments, helping them achieve universal school connectivity.
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-to-purposes 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.
