Refugee Connectivity

Commitment by

GSM Association

In 2007, the GSMA Development Fund committed to demonstrating how to provide affordable, sustainable access to voice communications and data services in refugee camps and settlements. Through the GSMA refugee connectivity project, GSMA will adapt their 'Shared Access to Voice' and 'Shared Access to Data' GSM connectivity programs already developed in non-refugee settings in support of education, family reunification, health care, economic empowerment, and other urgent refugee concerns.
