The British novelist E M Forster famously said ‘only connect’ and that is the mission of Row6C.
The Earth is vast. But we live in a small world. People say there are only six degrees of separation between any two individuals on the planet – from a newborn child in the most isolated tribe of the Amazon to Barack Obama. A chain of six human relationships connects everyone. We may be linked, but few of us would deny that in our modern world we are increasingly isolated. At Row6C we believe our world is separate enough. We need others in our lives. Now is the time to draw together.
Row6C, the non profit arm of Row6 works together with local and global partners to bring satellite wireless technology to remote and impoverished communities around the world. Our aim is to create a better connected world and help foster global understanding, friendships and compassion. Communication is the best tool to improving relationships in general and we believe technology has vital role to play.
We will use the internet in the spirit it was created – to connect to lives of others, to promote our own humanity. From our own doorsteps to the most distant horizon, together we can create the unity that eludes the conventional grind of politics and diplomacy. Together we can share. Share information. Share imagination. Share vision. Share a movement that unites this world where we live and love, and making it that much better and fairer for us all.
