It is works on all platforms, is free, open-source, content-agnostic, and available in 100+ languages: as such it allows dozens of organisations around the world to bring digital education to people in rural areas, refugee camps, or even prisons.

Kiwix

Biographies look all the same, so here is instead a little story: I’m old enough that my first browser was Netscape – I started using internet when the web was a couple of years old and Yahoo! was the biggest search engine. That was about 30 years ago, and today only the richest half of the world’s population has internet access. The bottom half, in the meantime, remains unconnected. How long do you think it will take to reach these? I don’t know either, but this is why we created Kiwix – so that people can access content without the need for permanent connectivity.
