Social Inclusion

Satellite communications promote social inclusion, enabling access to everyone

Social inclusion refers to the process of ensuring that all individuals, regardless of their backgrounds, identities, or abilities, have equal opportunities to participate fully in society. It involves creating inclusive policies, practices, and environments that enable individuals to access education, employment, healthcare, and other essential services without discrimination. By fostering a society that celebrates diversity and actively works to remove barriers, social inclusion enhances social cohesion, strengthens communities, and contributes to a more equitable and just world for all.

Social Inclusion is at the heart of Gilat’s Vision; “We believe in the right of all people to be connected.”

Satellite communications play a crucial role in achieving social inclusion by bridging the digital divide and expanding connectivity to remote and underserved areas. There are numerous ways in which satellite communications contribute to social inclusion, including: Internet Access, Telemedicine, Education, Government and Emergency Response, and more. 

Gilat is proud of our efforts to expand social inclusion around the world:

  • In Peru Gilat is dedicated to supporting telecom and technology projects for the Peruvian Government as well as multiple Telecommunications Service Providers and working closely with the Ministry of Education. These projects are significant in closing the digital gap in rural areas of Peru, enabling a wide range of technology integration capabilities including e-learning and early warning systems for emergency and natural disasters.
  • NBN Co builds and operates Australia’s wholesale local access broadband network with the purpose to connect Australia and bridge the digital divide. Gilat and NBN Co have a long history of working together to ensure all Australians have access to fast broadband as soon as possible, at affordable prices, and at lower cost.
  • Throughout Mexico and Latin America, Gilat has been working for decades with service providers and governments to connect tens of thousands of schools in remote areas that have no access to even basic internet service.

By leveraging satellite communications, societies can overcome geographic barriers, extend digital connectivity, and ensure that marginalized and remote communities have equal opportunities to participate in the digital age, contributing to their social inclusion and overall development.
