PRESENTATION: The Final Frontier: Lessons in Reaching Rural Women and Youth, Sep 2016
In order to reach rural women and youth through mobile technology, they need to be able to access phones that work at the precise moment you are trying to engage with them. This isn’t always easy. While some own a phone, many find themselves in a range of different sharing situations, giving them partial access. Even phone owners experience issues like poor network, no electricity and expensive credit that can restrict their ability to use the phone. Despite these challenges, VOTO Mobile will present 10 ways to ensure your program is accessible to rural women and youth.
