Digital Poverty

Imagine navigating today's world without a smartphone
In the US, nearly 25 million people experience digital poverty; meaning they have no internet access or reliable phone. With the growing wealth divide, technology accelerates the gap by leaving those who are disadvantaged even further behind.

Could you get a job without a smartphone?
Today, it's nearly impossible to get ahead without digital access
Roughly 30% of adults with annual household incomes below $30,000 don’t own a smartphone. Can you imagine contacting your friends and family, getting a job, or just getting around without one?
Talent is equally distributed. Opportunity is not
Even as technology becomes more affordable and internet access seems ubiquitous, a “digital divide” between rich and poor remains. The digital divide has far-reaching consequences when it comes to education and access to opportunity, especially for women, minorities and children.

Mobile with a mission

A portion of every sparrow monthly subscription goes towards digitally enabling someone in need via smartphones and data plans. We partner with amazing nonprofits and impact programs serving women, youth, homeless and refugees. Together, we’re creating digital access for under-served communities and a more inclusive world.
