CASE NOTES OF GUIFI AFRICA IN RURAL AREA OF PORMULUGU SIRIGO
For more than five years, Head teacher at primary school complained about the NO Wi-Fi in the school of Pomulugu Sirigo Northern Region of Ghana.
This year, a member of Guifi Africa visited the school and explain to her what service Guifi Africa as NGO can be provided to the school and the benefits the school children and community will gain,
Guifi Africa believes the provision of such services will impact schools, clinics, farmers and community in rural areas as corporate telecommunication will not waste millions to install infrastructure where they will gain nothing, but Guifi Africa aim to ensure no children or clinics in such rural areas will be denied of such digital technology advancement so they can be link to rest of the world.
It’s our role to ensure internet access for farms and rural residents, should be basic service and its digital right as stated by UN.
