Comments:  | Leave A Comment

Recent Rice University Business School graduate Idris Bello has partnered with a campaign called “Libraries Across Africa” which seeks to establish low-cost infrastructure for libraries and grant Africans with more books and Internet access.

Bello, who arrived in the U.S. from Nigeria in 2004, has been influential in creating a number of programs aimed to make Africans more self-efficient.

The Huffington Post named Bello  “Greatest Person Of The Day.”

The HuffPost Reports:

Bello is also involved in a program that seeks to develop mobile apps for small businesses in Nigeria, and another that enables doctors to do lab tests in malaria-stricken communities without a stable power supply. And the Libraries Across Africa program just won a $10,000 grant from the Dell Social Innovation Competition.
