Having realized that
communities in the developing world lack access and connectivity, which ought to acts as crucial channels to empowerment,
entrepreneurship, support and driving force for equitable and holistic development. In the 21st century, the digital divide
and community sustainability and empowerment are intimately related. These values form the basis of Kennedy’s wider-involvement
in Initiative with sole mission to connect developing communities.

of communities across the developing world face this challenge, little in the way of appropriate expertise and experience
exists to support them. This is the problem Kennedy’s participation in development platforms sets out to address. He
provides expertise in best practices, facilitate information sharing, communication and engagement for communities, and support
projects on the ground through planning, expertise, resources and partnership.
