Technology to Replace the Horses

Khan Academy and more coming soon to Tatumbla
Khan Academy and more coming soon to Tatumbla

A big "muchas gracias" to those of you who have donated to this project thus far.  As we have recently received funding for technology based resources and some of that technology can be used in remote regions where there is neither electricity nor computers we are shifting our focus from the "bibliobus."  We are looking to replace those horses with internet connectivity, computers and both on and offline education resources and also to increase our collaboration with local schools. Our first pilot project community will be Tatumbla, outside of Tegucigalpa, Honduras.

As a result we will be closing out the bibliobus project.  We encourage you to watch this space for a new project related to providing access to the vast amount of information available on the internet.
