What we do
Project Isizwe is an award winning, non-profit organisation which works with the public and private sector to bring internet access to people across South Africa, by facilitating and enabling the deployment of free internet hotspots within a walking distance in low-income communities for educational purposes, economic development and social inclusion.
The best means of addressing inequality in our communities is the deployment of public -or privately funded Free WiFi throughout public spaces in low-income communities.
To date over 4,4 million unique citizens have connected to more than 1500 Isizwe-enabled Free WiFi hotspots across South Africa.
