Hilmi Quraishi is Co-founder and Director, Social Initiative of ZMQ Software Systems. He specializes in developing system-changing solutions for sustainable development through the ‘Mobile for Development’ initiative, which aims to connect the people that are normally unreached. Hilmi has demonstrated how these solutions can run successfully in rural areas by using many of his innovative solutions, from life saving cell phone games to mobile health care, support and treatment systems, and mobile-based rural finance solutions. Under another initiative, ‘Mobile for All,’ Hilmi advocates the “Universal Right to Connectivity” as a right to life by influencing policymakers to dedicate a part of the bandwidth free for delivering lifeline services to all people, especially the poor, rural and marginalized.
