Bangladesh's army of 'InfoLadies'

They zap around on bicycles, each carrying a netbook, mobile phone, and medical supplies. 'InfoLadies' are like Little Miss Know-It-Alls with a revolutionary idea: to bring crucial (and potentially life-saving) information to the doorsteps of millions of poor people in Bangladesh.
"Ask me about the pest that's infecting your crop, common skin diseases, how to seek help if your husband beats you or even how to stop having children, and I may have a solution."

  2. This reply comes too late, but thank you Kixes :-)
