The World Wide Web Foundation was established in 2009 by web inventor Sir Tim Berners-Lee to advance the open web as a public good and a basic right. We are an independent, international organization fighting for digital equality — a world where everyone can access the web and use it to improve their lives.
To deliver digital equality, we aim to change government and business policies for the better. We believe that everyone has the right to access the internet and use it freely and fully — and these principles underpin all our work. In recent years, we have influenced policies in over a dozen countries, helping to unlock the benefits of the web for hundreds of millions of people.
