Information about the project
Beyond the Net Funding Programme
At the Internet Society, we believe that the internet has the power to change lives. That’s why we’ve launched the Beyond the Net Funding Programme. We fund innovative, sustainable and replicable projects up to $ 30.000 USD. We first started funding community Internet projects back in 2005, and we’ve supported over 180 projects since then. These projects are planned and brought to life by our members. We’ve helped fund projects covering everything from education and policy-making, from teaching technical skills to at-risk young people, to helping local engineers deploy leading technology. We support bright ideas that work in partnership with local organizations to empower people around the world.
