We believe that the opportunities and promise of a better digital future should be accessible to all, and we are committed to ensuring that the more vulnerable are not left behind on the journey to that future.
Through our technology, we will help bridge the divides that exist in our societies, not widen them. We are committed to ensure that the more vulnerable are not left behind on the journey toward a digital future particularly for women and young people.
Access to mobile technology provide transformative benefits for people in vulnerable communities, particularly for women and the youth.
Our goal is to democratise digitisation, ensuring that everyone can benefit from technology and is part of the digital society. We believe that owning a mobile phone can enhance an individual’s physical and economic security, provide access to education, skills and employment opportunities, and support good health and wellbeing.
Our digital solutions are connecting women and youth, promoting education, health and wellness, and preparing the youth for a digital society. By connecting women, we will help to ensure health and wellbeing, build skills and promote entrepreneurship to ensure that women reach their full potential.
By connecting and democratising education for young people, we will upskill the next generation and help them to succeed in tomorrow’s digital economy.
