Data poverty and devices

We can’t assume people with the internet and an old device know how to use them. Even when people have access to these things, they may not have the skills to enable them to access vital services and support.

Featured projects

National Databank

Like a foodbank but for mobile data, the National Databank provides free mobile SIM cards to help digitally excluded people get connected.
