What we do

NPO Reg No: 133-371 NPO
Project Isizwe is an award winning, non-profit organisation which aims to bring the internet to people across South Africa, by facilitating the roll-out of Free WiFi for public spaces in low income communities, with a core focus on connectedness for the purpose of education. We work closely with the public sector in deploying high-quality Free WiFi networks at the lowest possible cost. Project Isizwe believes that the best means of addressing inequality is the deployment of government-funded Free WiFi throughout public spaces in low-income communities. Each citizen should be within walking distance of Free WiFi.
