Bridging The Digital Gap

Brastorne is committed to connecting 760 million Africans who lack meaningful access to today's digital world. 

Leaving No one Behind

Brastorne connects the unconnected across Africa, enabling rural villagers to access the digital world without smartphones or data bundles.

Of Africa’s 1 billion people, 650 million own mobile phones—yet, paradoxically, most lack meaningful digital access; experts project 750 million Africans are “digitally excluded.” Why? Because most phones are ‘feature’ phones that lack apps—and because Africa is the world’s most expensive region for data. 1GB of mobile data averages $6.44—a week’s salary for most of Africa’s poor. We believe everyone has a right to social connection and educational and economic opportunity, but Africans remain disproportionately unconnected to the tools, opportunities, and services provided by the Internet and mobile apps. The business model for telcos and mobile app developers, and the entire digital economy, are currently built to leave Africa’s poor behind. Thus, our mission: Connecting the unconnected

Leveraging Mobile Solutions for Social Impact

We use USSD, IVR/VOICE, SMS technologies to empower underserved users. These technologies have high social impact by providing access to information, markets and financing to the underserved rural communities.
