INVENEO is a non-profit social enterprise. The mission statement of this foundation is to deliver ICT tools to the ones that need it most; people in isolated and rural areas in development regions in the world like East-Africa. In order to do so, Inveneo creates and sells highly affordable and sustainable ICT solutions that are specifically designed for organizations; governments, NGO’s and private enterprises. These organisations serve rural communities with vital services that include education, healthcare, economic development and telecomcenters. Inveneo has created a line of affordable products,hardware and open source software. These services can be combined into turnkey solutions for computing centres, connecting filed offices and much more. The hardware products, for example PC’s, feature an ultra-low power draw, few moving parts and are operable on an 12Volt battery system with alternate energy sources, like solar, wind or generator. Through the partnership between UKENGEE and INVENEO, we're able to use Inveneo equipment. We are proud to announce that we are the first one in the southern part of Tanzania who can dispose of this state-of-the art and low energy use equipment. 

Mark Summer, Co-Founder of Inveneo: "The Ukengee Foundation's work at the rural Kilwa Msaoko Secondary School in Tanzania is an ideal example of how an innovative NGO can get the most sustainable computer center to achive their education goals. Working with Kicheko Ltd., an Inveneo Certified ICT Partner based in Tanzania, Ukengee was able to deploy a solar-powered computer lab that was affordable to install, is very robust and affordable to operate, and will be supported locally to ensure that it continues to be affordable."
Kirstin Peterson, CEO and Co-Founder of Inveneo: "The Ukengee Foundation found the smartest way to get the most computing power for the money - working with a local ICT entrepreneur who understands the people and environment."
