Making speeches talk

Comment Neelie
excerpt from: End of Year Message
[...] Third, I've been all around the world, and seen how powerful and flexible a tool ICT can be. Flexible enough to help people of all backgrounds. In Nairobi, Kenya, in some of the poorest slums in the world, I saw computers offered by private initiatives opening new horizons for the most disadvantaged children. People without bank accounts using mobile phones to transfer money cheaply and easily. Software used to train rural nurses - in a country plagued by medical shortages, HIV and malaria.
