Women Ingenuity is Powering Solutions for the Digital Divide

Connection Cafe

There are digital literacy trainings for women springing up in Bangladesh, Internet cafés for women opening doors in Argentina, and women leaders in Kenya prototyping mobile apps that send out alerts if a woman’s safety is threatened. At World Pulse we trust that local women community leaders will reveal the way forward. With support, these local grassroots women leaders can lead the charge and open doors for billions of people in their communities.
