The mission of ahumanright.org is to improve the human condition by advocating for and safeguarding global access to information as a human right. We serve to facilitate mans ability to contribute and access knowledge, to further mankind’s ability to receive, seek and impart information and ideas.
Our vision is to connect all people by creating and stewarding a freely available decentralized global system of communication.
WHAT WE DO:
Almost 5 billion people lack Internet access.
We believe that access to information should be a human right. We advocate for the disconnected, and launch initiatives aimed at bridging the digital divide. Our last initiative, to buy a satellite and grant Internet access to millions can be found here.
Over a hundred innovators, thinkers, technologists, futurists, movers & shakers all over the globe. The idea for global connectivity was born in Berlin, Germany in an innovation “Do-Tank” called Palomar 5. Thirty people under the age of thirty came together to innovate on what the future might look like, and how to address some of the worlds problems.
