A ‘Smart Village’, is an inclusive environment where all people have equal opportunities to succeed.  We research and understand the challenges in communities we work in and share these on an inclusive Co-Innovation open Platform where companies, universities, government, or any individual can come together to share and help one another in solving problems for underserved communities.

With this core principle, Smart Village Movement is proud to introduce  Voice of SAP (VOSAP) to the state of Meghalaya to reach a wider community.
