The Global Network
Much change has taken place in recent years regarding our understanding of social networks and group association. In today’s world, you can have over 500 friends on facebook, speak with them on Skype as if they are next to you, or twitter the world the latest news. It’s easy to have friends across the globe, and to keep in touch with them.
A different story is working across the globe. Skyping is a possibility, and exchanging emails with information is quick and easy. But what about Africa, where electricity (let alone internet) is difficult to have?! Surely, in big cities anywhere in the world you can find computers, internet, and the like — but working intercontinentally with Africa is still an exciting challenge.
Movement Bikes has rolled out it’s initial deliveries, and is now focusing on gathering data on its product. The OGRA Foundation is monitoring individuals that have received bicycles in the hopes to analyze the value bicycles bring from an economic perspective. Other partners are providing updates as well, adding to the large number of feedback we have already received on the products. Enjoy an overview of our new partnerships and important events from the summer in our Pilot Project Media Report.
