Machizo provided video and photographic documentation services to 'Gram Web' a project of GCC at Grameen Communication for its 'Gram Uthshob' initiative under the title 'Social Services in Wheels' in Rampal from Jan 14-16, 2012.
GramWeb is a web-based platform developed by Global Communications Center (GCC) to provide a point of information storage and sharing for the 85000 villages of Bangladesh. This enables Villagers at the Base of the Pyramid (BoP) to move from information consumers to information producers. They collect their village data and share them worldwide via their own village site to be maintained by a villager called Village Information Entrepreneur (VIE) for promotion, communication and thereby make it a source of their income. For the first time villagers can know and share their village to the whole world resulting a virtual global village.
GramWeb assists villagers to become village information owners and invites the BoP villagers to use their village information as their sources of income. This system increases information transparency and accuracy, and improves villagers' opportunities.
