Connected hearts: Comet raises funds to help connect schools to the internet
January 17, 2023
You’ve been many joining our group-wide initiative to connect schools all over the world to the internet. After being online for a month, our mini game has been played more than 3000 times, the high scores getting higher and higher. We’re now converting these scores in to a donation for Unicef’s Giga initiative.
Thank you to all those who spent a little time to create a big impact.

Swiss Francs for Unicef's Giga project
Game completions x Top 100 avg. points / 500pts = 1 CHF // 3236 x 1377 / 500 = Result
Where does the money exactly go?
As announced, the money will be donated to Unicef-ITU's Giga Initiative. We selected this project because we believe that if given the chance, all children can learn and make the world a better place, even in areas with weak infrastructure.
By giving children access to education via the internet, we can help bridge the gap.
Mapping schools worldwide to assess demand and infrastructure
Working in partnership with governments, Giga is mapping the connectivity demand, using schools as a base point, and identifying where there are connectivity gaps. This information, combined with existing ITU mapping data, allows countries to take stock of their existing infrastructure and assess appropriate solutions for connecting schools. More than 1 million schools in 41 countries have been mapped through Project Connect, a mapping and connectivity monitoring platform.
Thank you for helping us making the future better.
