Providing Access to the Children of Indian Migrant Workers

India is considered to be one of the key emerging markets in the world. While the rest of the world has concerns about an aging population, the Indian Census Bureau reports that 40 percent of the populace in India is below the age of 18, and by 2015, 55 percent will be under 20. In order to convert this opportunity into a strength, education of young Indians has become an imperative - beginning with pre-school age education.

Chances are you know someone who has suffered a heart attack or stroke – often, the first warnings of cardiovascular disease (CVD). But did you know that CVDs are the leading cause of death globally?

Building a New Model of Regional Medical Care

Tomio Hasegawa needs advanced health services to keep his blood pressure under control. The fact that he lives in a remote region of Japan where access to these services is lacking doesn’t prevent him from getting the daily care he needs.

3G Provides Opportunities for Entrepreneurs & Students in Indonesia

Since the inception of our pilot project in Palembang, Indonesia, I have witnessed the power that opportunity can have in people’s lives, and more specifically, the influence of wireless connectivity. In May 2010, we completed a project with SRA International, Inc., that offered 1,000 prepaid tuition vouchers (all of which were redeemed) to economically disadvantaged students. The goal of the voucher program was to build awareness and interest in new wireless technology services within middle-mile communities – communities that connect a small town to a larger metropolitan area, where it then interconnects with major Internet carriers, providers and services.
