Access to information on bikes

The Infoladies project equips women with digital cameras, mobile phones, blood pressure monitor and pregnancy kits and solar-powered laptops to travel by bike to rural in Bangladesh and answer questions related to health, agriculture and development.

An InfoLady's netbook is loaded with content especially compiled and translated in local Bangla language and thousands have embraced them and the access to information their laptops bring.

"It was a scandal when I started my rounds two years ago with just a mobile phone," says Luich Akhter. Now it is more of a phenomenon. She is treated like a champion by people whose lives she's shaping with once "scary machines".
