Beyond the Internet: Helping People Connect in Rural Areas in India
While we talk about the rapid growth of advanced technologies with childish excitement, we forget that some parts of our planet still lack a very basic for digitalization thing — the internet. The irony is that only the technology can break that digital isolation, and at the same time give people from remote regions better access to better quality of life. The internet penetration in rural India was 20.26% in December 2017 in comparison to 64.84 % in Urban areas. That’s why WOOM can become a handy tool for local citizens of all ages allowing them to connect with each other at any time. All people need to get the app is a cell phone.
