iPass to help connect social organisations.
More than 100 social entrepreneurs can benefit from free Wi-Fi as they tackle some of the most devastating issues affecting the world.
A provider called iPass is set to give the internet access to 100 non-government organisations (NGOs) for one year as they work in dangerous countries and conditions to help others.
The NGOs can use it to communicate with colleagues and get the information they need in real-time as they tackle critical social issues.
IPass will announce the full list of entrepreneurs it is working with at the annual Skoll Foundation’s Skoll World Forum on Social Entrepreneurship, in Oxford taking place until Friday.
"Mobile connectivity is critical to our social entrepreneurs’ work around the world, in some of the most remote places on earth. Yet global access to mobile connectivity is still not as affordable as people might think," said Sally Osberg, CEO of the Skoll Foundation.
"iPass will be an invaluable tool to keep them connected to what matters most."
June Bower, CMO of iPass, added: "The Skoll Foundation is at the forefront of innovation, and iPass is honoured to play a role in assisting the Skoll social entrepreneurs in their efforts to accelerate and scale impact.
"Mobile connectivity can play a key role by allowing these leaders to work and stay connected as they travel across the globe."
