This is discussion about Souktel - Mobile Phone Employment Service .
This is such an inspirational story and idea! I think it's so powerful when someone realizes that the opportunities that they may be given are so hard for many (especially women) to come by, and it becomes important to create more opportunities for others. Cell phone technology is the most innovative opportunity to spread education, information to the masses. For local women on the ground to be trained to use technological applications strategically creates boundless options- for employment, bettering families through commerce and communication and more innovation in this industry and in the Palestinian territories especially.
Bravo! I wish you much success in this endeavor!
This is a promising project to solve problems of unemployment and poverty among women. I like this innovative idea.

“This is a really interesting initiative where a highly educated population has not had this particular kind of opportunity. For this space and for this place this concept was really wonderful because it is focused on the need and the work that needs to get done.”
“The innovative aspect of the project is that it increases access in an area where people have had trouble getting employment because they don’t know about it or don’t have access to it. This initiative raises important issues of mobility, and may help bring access to men AND women in this particular region.”
