The Open Source for Equality Manifesto

 

Owning a mobile phone and having access to the internet can change lives. Yet millions of women in developing countries are unable to take advantage of the mobile internet. The main reasons for this are lack of literacy and digital skills.

Together, we can change this.

We can develop open and inclusive tools that facilitate women's access to important knowledge and practical information.

We can support software developers and content creators to adapt these tools for their communities.

We can help local organisations use these tools to increase their impact and improve the lives of beneficiaries.

Let's bridge the digital gender gap with open source.
