Cisco Partner Inveneo on Huffington Post: How Internet Connectivity Expands Economic and Community Development

SOURCE: Cisco Systems Inc.

DESCRIPTION:

Kristin Peterson, CEO of Inveneo, a key Cisco CSR partner, is a guest blogger on Cisco’s Impact X section on the Huffington Post.

In her post, Kristin talks about how Internet connectivity can impact economic and social advancement in developing communities. She describes the remote Kenyan island of Mfangano, where Internet access has dramatically increased participation in HIV/AIDS-related testing and social service programs.

Cisco has supported Inveneo’s efforts to design and deliver information and communications technology (ICT) to the most remote and underserved areas of the world with more than $US3 million in cash and product grants since 2007. For example, Cisco supported expansion of Inveneo’s Certified ICT Partner Program in Africa, and worked with Inveneo to establish Community Knowledge Centers in sub-Saharan Africa as part of Cisco’s Clinton Global Initiative commitment.
