    The lifeline of connectivity

    2022-09-20T13:15:00Z

    In the digital age almost half the world’s population are still offline. The UN has warned that without decisive action, “the digital divide will become the new face of inequality.” But we believe investing with an impact lens can help provide a pathway to social inclusion through services for millions of people, address the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and embrace “double materiality” along the way.
