Datawind and World vision collaborate to supply $40 tabs in Africa

Datawind, inventor of the $40 tablet, in association with World Vision Canada are embarking on a venture to supply UbiSlate Android powered tablets for trial use in African countries.

A lot of models of Ubislate powered tablets have been launched for field testing in Niger and Rwanda with plans to roll out on several other African countries. With a mere quarter of the developing world having access to the internet, WorldVision will try to bridge this gap and try to ensure their development work is reaching children and families. This will help World vision to make significant improvements in health care and education, in addition to exploring teaching opportunities with these tablets.

“Datawind is honoured to partner with World Vision Canada in providing technology which will help field workers in Africa as they strive to provide healthcare and education to families and children in need,” said Suneet Singh Tuli, CEO of Datawind. “We are proud to be part of this project, as we are dedicated to creating and providing technology that will empower education and promote innovation and research globally.”

“In our field testing in Niger, these cost-effective tables have shown the potential to increase our aid effectiveness, monitor progress and react to health and economic challenges in communities quickly so that we are able to provide the best support possible to children and families,” said Josh Folkema, World Vision Canada.

This latest version of the Indian designed Aakash tablet has the potential to shake up the education in system in developing countries, with the possibility to double the number who will have access to internet.
