Impact cinema

This page lists many of our impact stories from past and present projects across the world. The resources are organised according the part of the world where impact is created and include projects results from education, telecom regulation, digital health, data and governance and many other fields. 

As a center of enablement, SPIDER also showcases the digital solutions that our partnerships enable or support. That is why you will also be able to see videos that cover specific systems or soft/hardware utilisation. As  much as possible, we support global goods and open source information and communication tools to enable everyone to be able to benefit from digital transformation.
