Home for underprivileged children gets seamless internet connectivity

The Ark Trust, a house of hope for underprivileged children and street kids has received seamless internet connectivity from Twoobii Broadband, a satellite-based internet solution from Q-KON

The Trust which is situated in the Kavango West Region is a centre that brings about positive change among the youth through education. It provides children that live in and around it with basic needs such as food, psychological support and education.

Q-Kon decided to help Ark Trust because the region has always had connectivity difficulties which made basic everyday connectivity a luxury. The type of connectivity needed for the smooth operation of online learning and office administration was simply unavailable.

Twoobii business broadband brought about a great deal of relief to the trust’s management who are now able to run the initiative, the office administration and the online-based education programmes seamlessly. Q-Kon said in a statement that their collaboration with the Ark Trust underscores their sentiment that every Namibia must have access to information.

The Ark Trust’s Founder and Chief Executive, Stella Schenk had lots of praise for their new off-grid service provider, Twoobii broadband. On the efficiency of their new connection, she remarked “Connectivity issues? What’s that? No more”.
