Mozambican entrepreneur brings his mobile computers to other African countries
Dayn Amade, the founder of Maputo-based technology company, The Community Tablet, has created an interactive digital platform, through which people can be informed about issues impacting their lives. The mobile computer device, which runs on solar-powered LCD screens and is transported on a trailer, can be attached to anything from a car to a donkey, enabling it to reach even the most isolated rural communities. We spoke to Dayn Amade earlier this year on the initiative in Mozambique. Next month he plans to bring it to Zambia. He has been telling Newsday's Shaimaa Khalil how much his community tablet project has changed peoples' lives, and his determination to expand it beyond his home country.
