Today, Facebook has launched Internet.org App in Ghana. Ghana is the 5th country where internet.org app has been launched by Facebook. The Internet.org App is now available to Airtel Ghana subscribers.
People in Ghana can now use the internet for free to access local services, search for jobs, buy and sell products, and stay connected.
Right now only about 12% of people in Ghana are connected to the internet, but connectivity is already improving people’s lives and communities.
By connecting everyone, we hope to unlock even more opportunities for Ghana and people like Dauda Musa, pictured here.
Dauda runs a mobile money transfer business in Accra, and as the number of people with mobile phones has grown over the past few years, more people are using his service for business or to share money with friends and family.
Ghana is the fifth country we’ve connected through Internet.org — after Zambia, Tanzania, Kenya and Colombia.
Thank you to our community for your support and for pushing to bringInternet.org to more countries as we continue on our path to connect the whole world.
