Why Cloud Empowerment

Why Cloud Empowerment

The internet now reaches to almost every corner of the world, but if you are off the main fibre paths, in the developing word, it is delivered over satellite, radio or low speed cellular. For 60% of the world’s population it is financially out of reach and the people miss the benefits of better, education , training , healthcare and opportunity available that  higher speed, unlimited internet service delivers to many communities. To help bridge this digital divide, we are seeing an explosion of community wifi networks being deployed across all of Africa and in remote indigeneous communities globally.  These communities can now connect to the internet, but still face the challenge of high cost, low bandwidth speeds and  the lack of technology skills and services to take advantage of the explosion of low cost mobile access devices, and the delivery of high speed local networking to their communities. 

 The Cloud Empowerment team understands the challenges faced by the poor and those living in remote communities and with the poorest having little money or technical skills, we have built a new model of empowerment and opportunity for  those marginalized by high bandwidth costs and slow network speeds. 

Our turnkey model of wireless network and servers all driven with solar power, we believe is a template that all communities can use globally to empower their people, helping all to a better life.

 The Cloud Empowered NAS   can also be configured to meet the needs of vertical markets, on wifi or over the internet  in education, healthcare, agriculture, film and the arts , plus a host of other verticals.  

If you are interested in  our Cloud Empowerment solution,  or  you are interested in having us build a state of heart Mesh Wifi network for you, please write  to  pat@cloudempowerment.com


In Memory of Paul Sherwen

Paul Sherwen was a dear friend of myself, Alfred and Giz, we dedicate Cloud Empowerment to  our friend Paul, who   grew up in Karamoja, loved the people and spent a great deal of time empowering them and  helping all to a better life.   Paul was a key part of the rollout of Bicycles for Humanity globally and iEmpowerment.org  When we brought 4500 biked to Karamoja after the wars, I knew that I   was home and  keen to help grow world class companies  in partnership wit hate local people.  Paul, Theo Vos and I worked together to  help Theo grow Kara-tung.com into a world class tourism business .  We started the Tour of Karamoja and this is now turning into  an exciting mountain bike adventure tour business in the region. Giz, Alfred and I  are all technology  specialists and we felt that the best way to  honour our friend was to build a world class technology service company in the heart of Karamoja that would sell services globally in our friends honor. Mountain biking is in our blood, we encourge you to visit the Ride Karamoja pages contained in this site.
