Dots for .

Dots for Inc. will change the lives in African rural areas through the power of technologies.

Empowering Rural Africa with digital innovation

We live in a world full of possibilities, yet one vast region stands on the verge of significant transformation - rural Africa, holding immense potential

Unleashing the Potential of Rural Children

In the villages of Benin and Senegal, and soon across many African countries with limited network infrastructure, children can now dream big

Transforming Communities

Our digital services empower all rural residents, including women, enabling them to build new products and embark on a journey of economic empowerment.

Our Purpose


Unleash the constraints of the rural Africa

There are disadvantages that people have to tolerate by living in a rural area. Even if they choose to go to cities for job opportunities, they have to pay a high cost of living and live away from their family. Dots for Inc. exists to eliminate such disadvantages and build a world for everyone to choose where to live without feeling inconvenience.

Our Mission


Deliver the Internet connection and the benefit of Internet through Dots for to 200 million people living in rural areas in West African countries by 2030.

In Africa today, the majority of people live in small villages in rural areas that have been left behind by the wave of digitalization due to economic and geographical factors, and many people do not enjoy the convenience of online access. It is said that the Internet connection rate in Africa as a whole is less than 30%, but traditional telecommunication companies have little incentive to improve this situation from the perspective of profitability, and this negative situation will not improve anytime soon.

Dots for Inc. provides highly convenient digital services to these rural users with our unique technology. The last 1 mile internet connection is still an issue even in developed countries and newly developing countries such as ASEAN. Especially the rural areas of Africa and other developing countries are unlikely to be monetized by existing telecom towers and satellite constellation broadband communications and will not improve in the long term. Dots for Inc.'s solutions will focus on this segment, rural areas in Africa and developing countries.

Our approch


Development

Through collaboration and innovation, our mission is to contribute to a world where development is not just a goal but a continuous journey towards a harmonious and more equitable society.

Cooperation

It is a powerful force that promotes understanding, tolerance, and the creation of a supportive environment where diverse perspectives contribute to the achievement of shared objectives.

Support them

Whether it's financial aid or community projects, this simple phrase sums up the idea of supporting others to help them overcome difficulties and achieve their goals.

Our Services


The distributed wireless network technology "d.CONNECT"

d.Connect is a distributed wireless network technology that selectively transmits through multiple wireless routers in a distributed manner, unlike the conventional star network centered on a base station.
d.Connect will be installed in each rural village scattered across Africa, where the Internet communication network is still underdeveloped, using this technology, which is now in widespread use, to provide constant Internet access and various online services running on it.

Digitalization of Rural Areas realized by "Smartphone Installment Sales”

To facilitate access to our d.Connect and better navigation for villagers, we sell them smartphone for which they are required to pay per week.

Digitization of rural areas achieved through the sale of the very low-cost internet connection

Achieving digitization in rural areas hinges on the widespread availability of extremely affordable internet connections. By making these connections accessible at minimal cost, rural communities can harness the transformative power of digital technology to bridge socioeconomic gaps and drive inclusive development.
