We collect old cellphones lying around in people's drawers and ship them to our partners in Africa, who donate them to less fortunate families that cannot afford to buy a cellphone or to replace a broken one.
The value of communication spans all socioeconomic classes, from rich to poor. Africa is no exception, but not everyone has access to a cell phone...
During our exciting trip to Africa, we noticed everyone had a cellphone, including those without money. We realized a cellphone was more important than a meal to many, but how can they afford it and what can they do when they break their phone?
have a proper drainage system
have paved roads
