EACO Friendly Addresses for Rural Areas

Overview

Developing the World

EACO Friendly is working with the what3words app to bring addresses to every home in Africa.

Typically, unlike homes in towns and cities, African homes in a rural environment do not have a physical address.

In the recent Ugandan census each house was given a complex alphanumeric which is both difficult to copy  and, as it was written in chalk, easily lost.

What, no address?

Typical rural home in Uganda

Working with the what3words app we want to change all that. 

We are in a position to give everyone in Mukono and beyond a simple unique address that can be used by anyone else to find the 3 sq m square in which they are currently situated.

We will visit all homes in the rural areas of Africa, begining with a trial in the rural areas of Mukono District. We will offer residents of the area an address they can use for informing people of their location for such things as deliveries. 

 

They can then share that position with anyone else in the world using sms, whatsapp, email, messenger and many more applications.

This provides an easy answer to logistics companies attempting to make deliveries. In fact, it helps anyone find any location on earth.

Given the what3word app, a smart phone and some air time anyone can determine their location. 'what3words' gives a simple address. 

If you don't have a phone then, for a small fee, we can provide your location data which include both digital and analogue GPS references. All money collected goes to the agent providing the data.

With this can create employment for individuals, give them access to a smart phone and expose them to further opportunities in entrepreneurship. 

Agents pay a leasing fee for phone, air time and a data bundle and can earn almost UGX 4,000,000 per year and get the benefit of free air time.

This could work in association with other leasing projects such as stove leasing and leasing of lighting/charging kits.

Any locally based entrepreneurs are welcome to contact us regarding the above or any other ideas they have for sustainable businesses.
