Info Lady Mahfuza helps a relative of Tajul Islam talk and see him via Skype. Tajul has lived in Saudi Arabia for ten years and it is only by the advent of this Skype service that they have been able to see him. In rural Bangladesh the Info Ladies are bringing internet services to men and women who need information but don’t have the means to access the web. After three months of training the Info Ladies set out each day in their pink and blue uniforms to cycle to remote villages where they provide Skype connections to villagers who want to communicate with relatives working overseas. They also provide tech services, photographs, health tests, cosmetics and other small items that can be easily carried.
