Project Description
REDI - Rural Empowerment through Digital Inclusion is a project financed by the European Union and Polish Aid (Polish Aid's contribution is to be confirmed).

- To improve practices on replication of connectivity infrastructure and measuring the use of new technologies in the remaining regions of Georgia.
Expected Results
- Increased access to Wi-Fi in the rural areas of the target regions including highland villages and public spaces.
- Strengthened capacities of target communities in relation to digital infrastructure and community internet.
- Enhanced knowledge and capacities of SMEs and target communities in the use of internet and relevant digital services including e-Governance services.
