We live in a world where communication is faster than ever, where messages can be sent and received at lightning speed. That is, unless you live in a third world country. In countries like Ethiopia, modern technology is still considered a luxury. This includes technologies that we take for granted, such as broadband internet. Even for the minority of Ethiopians who own computers, broadband is cost prohibitive and is typically reserved for office purposes and businesses, such as internet cafes.
In an effort to improve communication with our donor family, we have recently installed broadband at our Ethiopian BCI office. We are excited about helping our staff complete their tasks more efficiently and having a better line of communication to share information with our donors.
