Cuba is the most disconnected country in our hemisphere. Only 400K people can visit the web, whereas 2.6M can only send and receive emails, but not access the web. Our organization supports Apretaste, a local non-profit in Miami that is founded by Salvi Pascual. His innovative platform allows web browsing via email, and takes into consideration, the size of emails and bandwidth limitations within the country. Combining those considerations to create a FREE way for Cubans to browse the internet using their current email service. Bringing the web to thousands of people who could otherwise not access anything
