Southeast Asia, Social Enterprise Accidental Tour!

Beneblog: Technology Meets Society

One of my business visits was to a long-standing social enterprise partner of ours, Digital Divide Data in Vientiane, Laos. I wrote about that visit in my last blog post: Digital Divide Data: our Partner in Laos. Their goal is to help protect vulnerable children. I especially appreciate Big Brother Mouse because of their shared focus on access to literacy.
