More than 2 billion people in the developing world live in rural and remote communities that lack basic access to information and communications technologies, such as computers and Internet access. Without these tools, residents can’t access vital information and resources that could improve their quality of life and open doors to better healthcare, education, jobs, and economic opportunities.
Inveneo works directly with nonprofits, NGOs, and government agencies to expand their ability to reach more people with technology and serve them better. For example, after converting to an Inveneo ICT system, a nonprofit operating in a Nigerian slum cut energy costs by 35 percent and expanded enrollment in a technology skills class by more than 50 percent.
The Inveneo Certified ICT Partner (ICIP) program cultivates economic growth in developing communities. More than 100 ICT entrepreneurs in 23 countries are trained to design, deliver, and support Inveneo’s rural ICT projects, making them more sustainable for the long-term.
Inveneo uses equipment from Cisco and other technology providers to build customized solutions that meet the needs of each organization it serves--for example, solar-powered computer labs, waterproof servers, and long-distance wireless networks that can connect locations up to 100 kilometers away.
Cisco has also donated high-definition video cameras and its WebEx collaborative solution to help Inveneo and its partners around the world communicate more efficiently and effectively.
Many of the companies that particpate in the ICIP program are expanding and fueling economic growth in their communities thanks to the exposure generated from their work with Inveneo.
More than 190,000 previously isolated people in Africa have obtained valuable online resources and learned basic ICT skills at 95 Community Knowledge Centers developed by Inveneo, Cisco, and other organizations.
At Dadaab, the world's largest refugee camp with 500,000 residents, Inveneo partnered with Cisco, NetHope, and others to bring better, more reliable Internet and communications capabilities to the many humanitarian agencies working in the region.
