To conquer hunger and the 'digital divide', we expand our projects to reach all our 250 schools; a vegetable garden to provide school meal and Internet access to leapfrog the villagers.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
Funds will be used to achieve the following objectives: (1) Add vegetable gardens for sustainable farming and feeding of rural schoolchildren at our 250 village schools. (2) Expand a mobile e-mail receive and delivery system via motor taxi and wi-fi technology to bring the benefits of communications, telemedicine, news, e-commerce and participatory democracy to remote villages. (3) Support telemedicine service in these remote rural villages.
How will this project solve this problem?
Add vegetable gardens for sustainable farming, expand a mobile e-mail receive and delivery system via motor taxi, and support telemedicine service in these remote rural villages.
Potential Long Term Impact
