Empowering the North Rupununi: Entrepreneur Marlon Dookram connects remote villages
In the heart of North Rupununi, Region Nine, a young and dynamic entrepreneur is making waves by connecting remote communities to the global digital landscape.
Marlon Dookram has not only transformed his village, Aranaputa, but has also become a beacon of hope for residents across the North Rupununi region through his thriving Wi-Fi business.
Aranaputa, like many other remote villages, faced the challenge of limited internet connectivity, isolating its residents from the vast opportunities that the digital world offers. Marlon, driven by a passion for technology and a desire to uplift his community, took it upon himself to address this issue head-on.
Dookram’s journey began with a vision to bridge the connectivity gap and empower his community with the tools necessary to thrive in the modern age. Armed with determination and a clear goal in mind, he established his own Wi-Fi business, providing affordable and reliable internet services to the people of North Rupununi.
Setting up a Wi-Fi infrastructure in a remote village comes with its own set of challenges, from technical complexities to logistical hurdles. However, Marlon’s dedication and hard work have paid off, as his business now services not only Aranaputa but also several neighboring communities.
This achievement has not only improved the quality of life for residents but has also opened up new avenues for education, communication, and economic opportunities.
One of the most significant impacts of Marlon’s Wi-Fi services is felt in the education sector. Students in the region now have access to online learning resources, breaking down the barriers of geographical isolation.
This newfound connectivity has empowered the youth to pursue their academic aspirations, creating a ripple effect that promises a brighter future for North Rupununi.
Moreover, the Wi-Fi services have facilitated communication and collaboration within the communities. Businesses can now operate more efficiently, and residents can connect with the world for various purposes, from healthcare consultations to e-commerce ventures.
Marlon’s initiative has not only connected people to the internet but has also connected them to opportunities that were previously out of reach.
