ITU and UNICEF have joined forces to connect every school to the Internet. 

PILLARS OF Giga

Map

Giga maintains a real-time map of school connectivity to identify demand for infrastructure and funds, measure progress toward increasing Internet access, and continuously monitor global connectivity. Over 1 million schools in 41 countries have been mapped, and are viewable live at www.projectconnect.world

Finance

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.

Connect

In partnership with industry, and based on the mapping results, Giga will advise 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

Empower

Giga partners with governments, UNICEF’s Reimagine Education, Generation Unlimited, the Digital Public Goods Alliance, and ITU to ensure every young person has access to information, opportunity, and choice.
