Notes from the Meeting

Location and status

Izazi is located in the South-central of Tanzania, about 85 km north of Iringa city. Lack of network connectivity, 2G only. People are travelling to Migori village to charge phones, surf Internet, sending project reports including pictures to the district officer. The village office has electricity, and so do some houses in the village.

Potential location for a hot-spot

The meeting was held at the government owned village office, opposite to bus stop ca 200 m north, a place well suited for a hot-spot.
