Digital Solidarity Fund website
The Digital Solidarity Fund went into operation yesterday. It was created a result of the discussions that have taken place around the World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS), which is lead by UNESCO and the International Telecommunications Union (ITU). The initial funding for the Fund is from the City of Geneva and a number of national governments. It is hoped that suppliers of IT and telecoms equipment will contribute one percent of their contract revenue in exchange for the right to advertise their support of the fund.
