Kiwix brings internet content to people without internet access
Country: Switzerland
Website: Kiwix

In many places internet can be slow, unreliable or even censored. Kiwix is an offline solution that allows you to access educational content like Wikipedia, the Wiktionary, Wikimed, TED talks and many others on any computer or smartphone - without the need for a live internet connection.

In schools, universities, prisons, and of course at home. Locally-stored content saves bandwidth and download time. Kiwix is small and efficient, works on low power or old computers. It also runs on a wide range of operating systems, from Android and iOS to Microsoft Windows, macOS and GNU/Linux distributions.

The Kiwix offline reader can view and transport hundreds of web resources without being connected to the internet or a GSM network. Kiwix allows you to store all the Wikipedia encyclopedia on your laptop, USB key or DVD and access the content very quickly.

The Kiwix offline reader has been developed to make Wikipedia available for those who do not have access to the Internet. The content of a website is downloaded and stored in a ZIM file. The Zim file format is a highly compressed format that includes additional metadata. Kiwix also allows you to copy, modify and distribute the data.
