Developing countries, above all in Africa, need sustainable solutions to help them grow. Communications satellites offer an instant communications infrastructure that would otherwise be beyond the reach of many developing countries.
Satellites offer a sustainable, cost-effective alternative to laying down copper wires, providing a solution free from bureaucracy and cost creep. Satellites connect Africa’s rural populations with the global economy; they monitor crops, predict droughts, and direct help when help is needed.
To governments, satellites offer a Civil Service in the Sky. Reliable tools in orbit help governments prevent and manage conflicts, to improve their national security and to extend governance to the furthest reaches of national territory.
Where Nigeria’s Space Agency is treading today, the rest of Africa will soon follow. Satellites are Africa’s infrastructure of the future. They are designed to spread good government, prosperity, education and hope into every village in Africa.
