There was plenty of excitement at the Boys' Town Football Field in Kingston, when telecommunications giant Flow launched Project Rise.

With the new mobile solution, thousands of Jamaicans can participate in the digital era with access to affordable smartphones.

According to FLOW’s Country Manager, Stephen Price, the company is optimistic that this new mobile solution, powered by a KaiOS system and Google Assist functionalities, will unlock a world of possibilities with a simple voice command.

“Project Rise brings new possibilities through connectivity to groups of people that have been unable to take part in the digital era, ensuring access to the tools necessary to achieve progress,” Price said.

FLOW is spearheading the programme along with its parent company Liberty Latin America (LLA).

The launch took place during a community treat hosted by FLOW. The programme will see FLOW distributing the mobile connectivity bundle within the communities of downtown Kingston and in sections of Spanish Town this year.
