African farmers using mobile phones

African farmers using mobile phones

Mobile phones Uganda

A useful video for showing how technologies are being used to aid development in Africa and a good starter for discussions about the perceptions of Africans and the uses of new technologies. In the video interview, Send a Cow rural farmers Jane & Helen explain how they use their mobile phones to organise meetings, share agricultural information via SMS, interact with radio programmes and take bookings for training. They are part of a group that has been trained by the charity in sustainable agriculture. As they say, they pass on their skills and knowledge to others in the community, and increasingly use mobiles informally to do this.
