Our project Help 5000+ villagers get internet in South Africa is still very active. We are still in the fundraising phase which has been rather slow. However, to date we have completed the installation of the Backbone Tower and are in phase 1 of the Trial period.
We are still in the process of securing funds to implement the antennae infrastructure at the respective surrounding villages. We have managed to secure a donation in kind ie batteries for the satellite power packs that will be secured in each village. We really need to complete this project and will drive another targeted campaign towards that.
We have completed a number of small events and workshops that continue to create awareness around GBV and Entrepreneurship,as well as our first ever hackathon where we focused on solving the great youth unemployment issue technologically, with 180 participants. A great success!
Thank you once again for your assistance herewith, it is much appreciated and we look forward to continued mutually beneficial success!
It is with immence gratitude that we share our first report for 2022 since the inception of our Rural WiFi Project in 'October' 2021.
Thanks to you, our donors, we've managed to raise $5 512 over the last 3 months!
With these funds we've managed to purchase all the equipment to set up our backbone structure which creates a wireless internet connection to the closest urban area, ensuring we can kickoff wifi access for 3 of the 5 villages in our pilot phase! We are still in the process of building this tower and hope to complete it by the end of January 2022 and will send updated photographs once built. We will however continue to raise funds to implement the smaller antennae infrastructure for the surrounding areas to get signal and WiFi access.
We look forward to continuing this journey of bridging the digital divide for rural South Africa with you and thank you for your generosity and kindness.
