In the urban regions of Manila's metropolis, 5 young Filipinos are building the country's first mobile, self-contained, wireless telecentre. The students are all graduates of the Philippines 1st telecenter, GLOW, which launched in 2000. They have designed a new and innovative approach of delivering ICT learning combined with a sustainable model, to communities that typically have no access to these services..
Trikes are the three wheeled motorcycles, which are the most common mode of local transport in The Philippines after the famous Jeepney.
Trikes set to become eTrikes
