WIAG OTT Statement

We the Women of Uganda call for the immediate removal of the social media tax and the mobile money tax as it will widen the digital divide.
Over 4 billion people (60%) of the world population are still not connected on the Internet with nine out of 10 residing in developing Countries. A UNESCO report, indicates that three major challenges women face are poverty, violence and lack of access to information. Access to information by women is discouraged by high cost of the internet and limited digital skills.
