Kuauli Digital Opportunities Initiative

This initiative started as a rapid prototype to learn how to address systemic digital and broadband inequities in Hawaiʻi in response to COVID-19 and has expanded to a statewide effort. It utilizes a multi-disciplinary approach by working on immediate acquisition and distribution of hardware directly to keiki, kūpuna, and communities in need, as well as partnering in a statewide network to provide broadband access to unserved communities.

Kuauli is also working to empower rural communities in creating self-managed networks that allow local autonomy and sovereignty over their own access to broadband services. The initiative also works with lawmakers and critical decision-makers to advocate for policies that remove the barriers preventing communities from accessing technology.
