The Mindanao Ecolife Hub is organized with the main aim of bringing the power of the web to positively affect the lives of the poor. The poor are very vulnerable to climate change and the web has a wealth of solutions for climate change adaptation which they can harness. We will start mainly with the youth who have the basic skills and bent to surf the web. Their learning, on a multiplier effect, can then be used to start small, doable climate change adaptation projects. Internet Café’s abound in schools, urban and rural centers, but these are mainly used for simple emails and gaming. The power of internet café’s is not harnessed to the fullest, when in fact advanced knowledge is there at the tap of the keyboard. No one has thought about this and this is an innovative concept.
To date, our effort is geared towards negotiating with an internet café located in Initao Municipality so that we can launch the first hub. Contract signing will be done next week then we will start with the first batch of trainees for the hub.
