Harnessing IT to Solve Issues in Rural Villages in India

NTT DATA Asia Pacific, India

Despite the nation’s economic growth, the gap between the rich and poor has become a major issue in India. Aspiring to improve the situation through the power of IT, we conducted a series of research and verification efforts that led us to focus on logistics, which is a particularly acute issue in rural regions with high rates of poverty. In January 2016, we set up “Our Farmer,” a website for the more affluent to purchase organic farm products. In view of the state of domestic distribution, about 2,500 farmers in Chennai in the State of Tamil Nadu are providing products that last for a relatively long time.

The website takes advantage of the need for safe and secure food in urban areas and the high penetration of mobile devices in the country. Also, it enables farmers to directly connect with consumers without requiring an intermediary, and thus earn more while providing health-conscious consumers easier access to organic products. We will seize the development of EC business in emerging countries as a new opportunity to grow and continue to continue to expand our business while seeking to resolve social issues.

TABLE FOR TWO

NTT DATA company cafeterias in the Tokyo area have, since November 2008, participated in the “TABLE FOR TWO” program. For each meal purchased from the smaller-portion, low-calorie “TABLE FOR TWO” menu, we contribute 20 yen to the TABLE FOR TWO organization, which in turn donates to countries in need. That 20 yen covers the cost of a child’s school meal in a developing country. The program provides children in developing counties with nutritious school meals while encouraging our employees to reduce their caloric intake, which can improve their overall health and prevent such disorders as metabolic syndrome.
