The Internet Changes Everything

November 2017

In November 2017 grant application cycle 13 new projects were selected. These projects cover issues like: connecting unprivileged and rural areas in Tanzania, Greece, Kenya, Honduras, and Paraguay; establishing an online audio library for people with visual impairments in Rwanda; promoting safety online in Palestine and Kenya; teaching digital literacy to indigenous communities in Canada and teaching girls how to code in Sri-Lanka; developing content for endangered languages in Peru; consolidating the institutional framework of the Bolivian Academic and Scientific Network; and raising citizens’ awareness on the issues related to personal data usage in Finland.

Each of these projects is a milestone in the mission of the Internet Society that contributes to the Internet we want to build for tomorrow.
