Technology is a powerful force for improving people's lives. But right now, half the world does not have access to the benefits and opportunities that technology offers. That’s why we're committed to doing more globally to bring the benefits of technology to the people and organizations who need them most. Together with our grantees, partners and employees around the world, we’re working to fulfill Microsoft’s mission to empower every person and every organization on the planet to achieve more.
