Digital Inclusion activities in DRC

In DRC (Congo) the focus will be on novel services and entrepreneurial opportunities through Internet services provided in an off-grid location. We will demonstrate the ability to establish a profitable business as mobile operator and internet provider in rural areas, reaching out to people with income below 3$US per day by including them into the digital society. We have identified the villages of Kano and Palu as pilot entrepreneurial services and information through the extension of the satellite-based mobile service provision with an Internet extension. Examples of the envisaged services are voucher-sales for digital services, electrical lights, as well as programs and mentoring for education and health.
