Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2004
This description of Ananya Raihan's work was prepared when Ananya Raihan was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2004.
Ananya Raihan is ushering in an era of information-on-demand in the rural areas of Bangladesh by building a network of locally-run kiosks that offer villagers access to everything from up-to-date market prices for their rice, to health information and legal forms, all through a centralized, Bengali-language information clearinghouse.
