About Us

The World Wide Web Foundation was established in 2009 by Web inventor Sir Tim Berners-Lee to advance the open Web as a public good and a basic right. We’re building a future in which the Web empowers everyone, everywhere, to take part in building a fairer world.

The Web Foundation blends powerful advocacy, cutting-edge research, and practical innovation to build a better Web for all. We focus on three key dimensions of human rights online:

  • We’re working to expand access to the Web for the 60% of the planet who are still not connected.
  • We’re fighting to ensure that everyone’s voices can be heard online, and that the Web serves people, not governments or corporations.
  • We’re innovating to make knowledge and data freely accessible to all online.

Our team works from hubs in Washington DC, Cape Town, Jakarta and London.
