Telephone lady of Bangladesh finds place in Scottish museum

UNB

National Museum of Scotland located in the city of Edinburg has opened 10 new galleries in 2016 and one of them is on “Telephone Lady” of Bangladesh, UNB
The exhibition was officially launched on July 8 under the Science and Technology gallery.
National Museum of Scotland reached out to Grameen Telecom in February, 2015 with their interest in Village Phone.
Grameen Telecom sent case studies, newsletters, guide book and a range of equipment that was being used by a Telephone Lady during 1997 to 2000 to operate her phone business.
The display includes Nokia handset, GSM Tester and a Signboard Stand, according to Yunus Centre.  Grameen Telecom launched its fascinating programme, Village Phone, on March 26, 1997, with a vision to bridge the technological gap between urban and rural Bangladesh through affordable mobile technology.
This programme was uniquely designed only for Grameen Bank borrowers. This recognised the Museum as a significant breakthrough in technology to be recognised by the Technology Museum.
