Project Focus

30 Jan

In our world , the internet has become an essential part of information sharing, communication and other important pieces of life. Essentially all of the developed world is connected in some way or another to an internet source. However, in third world countries access to the internet is by no means an available resource. Lyantonde, a community in rural Uganda which is an epicenter of the African AIDS crisis, is miles away from the nearest internet source. This leaves the inhabitants of Lyantonde isolated from the rest of the world. Project Focus is working to change that.

The goal is to build a solar-powered internet cafe in Lyantonde that would allow the community to communicate with the outside world. The project is currently is a heavy fundraising stage, as well as spreading awareness on college campuses. To get involved or make a donation please click the link above.
