Communication – it sets us apart; and brings us together
Research shows that regardless of our socio-economic position in society we all value communication equally. Our ability to talk to loved ones and stay connected is high on our list of priorities. Having access to mobile communications devices is an investment people all around the world – regardless of income – are willing to make for themselves, or on behalf of their loved one.
In fact, as far back as 2012, Unicef were reporting that north of 10% of monthly income was being spent on staying connected in developing nations. This priority to stay connected, becomes more complex when we consider the unprecedented levels of displaced people around the world. The United Nations estimates that as of 2017, more than 65 million people were forcibly displaced worldwide, with an additional 25.4 million displaced every year due to natural disasters and climate-related events. Staying connected is a growing challenge as more and more people are living further from their homelands.
