As part of the GSMA’s Connected Women Commitment Initiative, Ooredoo Maldives has committed to increase the proportion of women with access to mobile internet and mobile money by 2023.
“Ooredoo Maldives commits to increasing the number of women who benefit from mobile internet and mobile money services. Ooredoo strongly believes that being connected has a positive socio-economic impact and empowers society as a whole. We aim to extend these opportunities to all women in the Maldives, ensuring that they too have access to the extraordinary benefits of mobile technology. The company continues to encourage women to use mobile technology through initiatives such as the Smart Ideas for Women challenge. This initiative aims to highlight challenges faced by women in local communities and creates awareness on how mobile technology can provide smart solutions to these issues.
Modern technologies have had a profound impact in enriching people’s lives and creating new opportunities for growth. However, a large percentage of women across the world are deprived of these possibilities due to challenges in accessing and using mobile phones and mobile internet. We are pleased to support GSMA’s Connected Women Commitment, with the aim of closing this digital gap and extending the opportunities of mobile technologies to all women in the Maldives, ensuring that they too can reap its remarkable benefits for economic and social development.”
