Concept

About the project Edit

ANTENNE SOLIDAIRE uses the concept of inter-network synergy and ICT to promote sustainable development. It allows televisions from several different households to be networked together using a manual multi-port connector, hooked up to one radio wave antenna. These connectors are manufactured locally, which creates a source of self-employment for youth in the telecom sector. This initiative uses a single antenna to build a community environment around sharing a common resource.
