Challenge

People, especially the children, do not have a decent place to be able to connect to the internet in their community: internet signal is precarious, the public access point is fenced and closed. They can only connect in surroundings, from a cellphone, sitting in the dusty street or on top of a stone, no shadow... How to do homework? How to watch a movie or documentary all together? How to create a website for their tourism venture?

Solution

The SOLE Lab: a futuristic public space based on self-managed learning supported by technology (SOLE). Environmentally sustainable architecture and furnishing, it will be a happy, participatory and quickly-assembled environment where groups can learn, engage in dialogue across differences and collaborate, supported by the Internet, creating flourishing communities and a more equal and connected world. A open-source "solution-guide" to self-assess current challenges and seek enhanced Internet.

Long-Term Impact

Boca de Camarones is already working on the sustainability of its SOLELab: community gathering, homework for kids, women weaving, promoting tourism and Internet connection. Dominguillo has 5 Ambassadors who are transforming their community through SOLE through 2023. Besides, 3 working circles in El Tambo: Women, Youth and Water, are working together to develop a better future. Both communities need a community space, with connectivity and free access, so they can keep creating their future.
