Access to affordable digital content, applications, and services at adequate speed is critical.

Why N50 Project

Connectivity is just the start. We focus on tech-neutral connectivity, literacy, language, and convening partners to deliver human-enriching applications around education, healthcare, agriculture, and local entrepreneurship. We believe this model in partnership with private enterprise is the opportunity to scale. No one company can do this on their own.


What We're Doing

  • We are currently testing the model in a pilot at a rural village in Zambia and a rural location in the US.

  • We are developing implementable blueprints that focus on connectivity options, applications, and sustainability.

  • We are recruiting partners from public, private, non-profit, and academia to join the charter.

  • We will launch in Q1 2022
