One World. 1000 ideas. That is the mantra behind Share, an exclusive magazine for Nordea’s Private Banking customers. The magazine seeks to introduce the reader to new business ideas that have the potential to change the world. In the latest issue of Share, BLUETOWN rural internet solutions deployed in Tanzania has been chosen as the theme of the featured article.
The frontpage of the magazine feature a beneficiary of BLUETOWN’s unique rural internet services under the headline: “Danish internet masts have brought internet to East Africa, changing life in isolated villages. Now, Zawadi Mkongua can take a photo – and share it on Instagram in minutes”.
To do research for the article, Nordea Share sent the award-winning Danish photographer Lars Just to visit one of BLUETOWN’s projects in rural Tanzania. In the article, he reports how getting internet access in the village has created new revenue streams for local entrepreneurs, how a local tailor increased his revenue by accepting orders online, and how a local school has been transformed by equipping the teachers with world class online teaching materials.
At BLUETOWN, we are proud to see the potential of our solutions acknowledged by the Nordea Share magazine, and see the local impact of our work documented by others. With 4 billion people still unconnected around the world, our vision of connecting the unconnected remains as vital as ever.
