Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2004
This description of Satyan Mishra's work was prepared when Satyan Mishra was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2004.
In rural India, villagers live without easy access to trade, government, business, and health information. This makes them easy prey for intermediaries who control the flow of information and can demand high payments to allow villagers access to it. Satyan is building service kiosks in countryside villages to bring internet connections and ready, affordable access to information.
