The 'Free Basics' app makes the internet accessible to more people by providing them with access to a range of free basic services like news, maternal health, travel, local jobs, sports, communication, and local government information.

The service is now available in 19 countries including areas of Asia, Latin America and Africa. 

Free Basics is part of, a Facebook-led initiative that brings tech leaders, nonprofits and local communities together to help connect poorer areas of the developing world.
