Zuckerberg said over 4 billion people don’t have internet access.
I believe internet access is essential for achieving humanity’s Global goals, he continued and said when people have access to the tools and knowledge of the internet, they have access to opportunities that make life better for all of us, the internet is critical to fighting injustice, sharing new ideas and helping entreprenuers create jobs, but half of the people on this planet don’t have internet access especially women and girls.
The internet belongs to everyone and it should be accessible for everyone, I therefore call on leaders and innovators from all countries industries and communities to work together to make universal internet access a reality as promised in the new Global goals. Facebook is also in partnership with United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees to make sure refugee camps are connected with internet access world wide “Said Zuckerberg.”
