Who are you serving?
Of the 1.3 billion Africans, up to half of them live in poverty (47 percent of the African population is living on $1.90 or less a day).
Lack of adequate infrastructure and lack of knowledge are two major obstacles that impede mass connectivity. These barriers limit individuals' capabilities in what they can do and what they can achieve in accessing technology. Some individuals can connect, but they do not have the knowledge to use what information ICTs and Internet technologies provide them.
