Bridging a Digital and Social Divide

  • in africa only eleven percent of the population has access to the internet
  • this has not only created a digital divide
  • but has also increased the social divide
  • what if those without access...
  • could finally have their fortunes changed

In many rural areas today, digital connectivity and the internet as we know it are still widely inaccessible. This is the challenge we at E-MAGINE have set out to address.

Stemming from the graduate student project, IMAGINE Africa, E-MAGINE has evolved into a multidisciplinary student organization from the University of Michigan, dedicated to providing internet access solutions to rural and off-the-grid locations.

Our hope is to grow the possibilities of what our technologies can achieve in order to further reduce both the social and digital divides. If you or your organization are interested in our work, please contact e-magine@umich.edu.
