Dabaddo enables e-Everything. Dabaddo is a step change, for-profit, shared value Senegalese SARL, launched in Bonconto, Senegal and focusing on the convergence of energy, technology and connectivity for rural off-grid Africa, bridging the digital and energy divide and enabling e-Everything.
Globally, 1.2 billion people live without access to electricity with nearly half of them, 600 million people residing in Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA). In 2012 the UN General Assembly declared access to the Internet a Universal Human Right, yet only 12% are connected in SSA today.Thus, the challenge goes deeper than just access, as it must be affordable access and sustainable. We meet this challenge by building Connectivity Centers. We bring together: Energy, Technology and Connectivity.
DABADDO was born out of years of experience and a desire to build a sustainable for profit business with a strong social and economic impact, lifting impoverished rural communities, while simultaneously positioning the company to reap long term financial benefits. Vision - To make life better today and for generations to come through access to energy, technology and connectivity Philosophy - To sustainably make a profit while providing a social benefit, without the requirement of continuous funding.
