Impact of School Connectivity on Societal Empowerment

The paper was authored by Josef Noll (University of Oslo & Basic Internet Foundation), Catherine R. Kimambo (African Child Projects & Basic Internet Foundation), Peter Mmbando (Internet Society)

The purpose of this document is to describe the impact of school connectivity on societal empowerment in Tanzania. The pilot of connecting 10 schools aims at establishing sustainable business models for the operational expenditures (OPEX), and involves all actors in the value chain. Together with the Universal Communications Service Access Fund (UCSAF), Mobile Operators, UNICEF and the Internet Society, we see school connectivity as a first step for establishing access to information in local communities and thus contribute to digital inclusion. Demanding affordable Internet access is not only part of the Sustainable Development Goals(SDGs), it was further stressed by the United Nations, Governments, the Internet Society, NGOs and local communities.
