4G So I Can Study

The Right to Education is a fundamental human right acknowledged by dozens of international law treaties.

For this right to be fulfilled during a global pandemic, reliable access to the internet is no longer a bonus but a fundamental tool for learning. However, with the economic downturn hitting the poorest the hardest, this access to education is withheld from those who need it most.

Indeed, with schools closed and incomes spread thin, many families in the Pavão-Pavãozinho and Cantagalo favelas are struggling to pay rent, let alone ensure their children have access to the internet on the one family device.

4G So I Can Study aims to remove this as a problem for our kids so they can continue their development. The project aims to fundraise enough to cover 4G for 300 families over a period of 6 months.

Just €6 connects 1 household to the internet for 1 month. This is more than access to a classroom: for many, it is a fundamental key to a better life.

Internet Connection


  • Why 6 months?

Currently, the schools in Rio are poised to open in July, so it will no longer be a prime necessity for students to have access to the internet.

  • Why 300 families? Don’t you have 400 students?

Many of our students are siblings! We are covering 4G per household as often there is only one device per family.

  • Why are you providing 4G rather than cable internet?

Not only is 4G cheaper, in a context where there is no reliable source ofelectricity, it provides a more consistent connection. It is also much simpler and cheaper to install, as it requires only a sim rather than cables!
