More than a billion people in India aren't connected to the internet. The mission of Internet.org is to get everyone in the world on the internet so they have more access to information, opportunities and innovations. A free and open internet brings us closer together and helps us solve problems, find jobs and discover new ideas. It lets us stay in touch with the people we care about wherever they are. A connected world is a better world.
Internet.org lets people view helpful websites without paying for data. There are websites for health, education, jobs, government and more. People can also use apps to share updates with family and friends. Internet.org can impact people in so many positive ways: a chicken farmer is able to sell more of his stock, an expectant mother can look up health information that will help her raise her child, and a student can find education services to study for exams. In fact, research has shown that for every billion people who gain access to the internet, more than 100 million rise out of poverty.
Internet.org works with service providers and developers to offer these free basic services, and people can choose which ones are most important to them. It's free to join and open to all.
By showing your support, you can help Internet.org continue providing internet access and opportunities to the people of India, including your friends, family and community. With more than one billion people in India getting onto the internet, we can help increase economic and social progress in the whole country and we can improve the lives of so many talented people who have so much to offer the world. Join us in our commitment to making India—and the world—more open and connected.
