Join the fight against extreme poverty

Based in Nairobi, Kenya, Juliana Rotich is on a mission to bring reliable internet to Sub-Saharan Africa and the world. BRCK, the brainchild of Juliana and her team, is a portable, crowdfunded, internet access device. Designed to allow internet access in the most remote places of the world, BRCK is a durable and rugged way of providing Wi-Fi to both underdeveloped regions and emergency zones.

Standing just 2 inches tall and 5 inches wide, BRCK might look simple, but it packs a powerful punch. Bringing internet connection to remote regions in the world can be a huge opportunity for teachers, young programmers, and communities with no other way of connecting to the internet. Kio Kit, a high tech box of tablets, is another tool that BRCK has developed to take advantage of this newly created internet connection.

Before BRCK, Juliana was the executive director at Ushahidi, a crowdsourced crisis mapping software that helps responders and those affected to map environmental or political crises. Outside of her incredible work with internet connectivity and crisis information, Juliana is also a Senior TED Fellow, iHub trustee, and winner of the Schwab Foundation Social Entrepreneur of the Year award.
