Key components of GIGA
GIGA is an initiative to connect every school to the Internet, and every young person to information, opportunity and choice. GIGA is made up of four pillars - each with connections to–and support from–country governments, technology partners, and leaders across the United Nations (UN).
Map connectivity of every school and use it to show where connectivity demand is: use new technologies like AI to create a real-time map of school locations and their connectivity level.
Finance a Common Bid that aggregates connectivity demand in schools (pooled across multiple countries) and creates a cost forecasting model to make connectivity more affordable.
Connect every school to the Internet and create a monitoring system to oversee the level and quality of connectivity delivered by service providers (ISPs).
Empower young people with skills by investing in, and scaling, open source solutions that–with connectivity– will be available to children, teachers, and administrators.
