The digital divide: How to bridge the digital gap in a sustainable way.

Henri Nyakarundi June 13, 2022

We still have 3 billion people that are unconnected and over 200 million SMEs not participating in the digital economy. Since covid, most sectors have been digitized from government, education, and health, and yet almost half of the world population is not able to access this digital revolution. We need to rethink the way digital infrastructure is built across the world, we need to rethink how we can build a sustainable model and we need to rethink how big corporations can support innovative ideas and concepts.
Without the democratization of the digital economy, we are building a society of the have and have not.
