Help us in creating a brighter 2021 and start the year off right
This time of year my mailbox begins to see more action than usual with holiday cards and letters, but as I and, I’m sure, many others, we’ll see even more this year as we continue to be remote. But what if you didn’t have easy access to a mailbox?
Postal addresses are an important part of communication infrastructures all over the world and without one, you miss many opportunities: job offers, university admissions, to name a few.
MPost, EWB’s most recent partner venture identified this as an integral issue for many people living in Kenya. MPost stands for Mobile Post and it enables any mobile phone user to have their phone act like a post office, so you can get access to postal services. MPost has helped connect thousands of people across the country to the information they need.
It has been so widely adopted by the population that the government of Kenya has reached out to the MPost team to implement the tool widely! It is incredible to see what a small group of motivated people can achieve.
