We are excited about the progress we are making!  Our new WiFi Learn platform is almost ready. We have completed our directory of the most important online educational platforms that kids can use to learn anything they desire. It includes encyclopedias, dictionaries, games and languages programs.

Here are some of our resources:

https://www.khanacademy.org 

Khan Academy is a non-profit educational organization with the goal of creating a set of online tools that help educate students. The organization produces short lessons in the form of videos. Its website also includes supplementary practice exercises and materials for educators. All resources are available to users of the website.

http://edx.org 

EdX is a massive open online course (MOOC) provider. It hosts online university-level courses in a wide range of disciplines to a worldwide student body, including some courses at no charge. It also conducts research into learning based on how people use its platform.

https://www.coursera.org 

Coursera is an online learning platform that offers courses, specializations, and degrees. Coursera works with universities and other organizations to offer online courses, specializations, and degrees in a variety of subjects, such as engineering, humanities, medicine, biology, social sciences, mathematics, business, computer science, digital marketing, data science, and others.

We also have an free educational internet filtering technology that will be available through the internet for people or schools that want to use it.

Additionally we thrilled to announce that have received a donation of 46 laptops that we will be putting in places where children can use them to access our directorys educational content. Mr. Hugh Baver, the overarching founder of Sosua75.org and one of our WiFi Learn local project leaders and collaborators has formed a partnership with the boyhood coach of Boston Red Sox Hall of Fame pitcher Pedro Martinez where WiFi Learn will be giving 10 of its donated laptops to his School in Santo Domingo. We also too going to help Cabarete and Sosua Baseball Leagues installing several computers with our educational platform in their locations to teach the kids how to study online and make life easier for them in their future! Mr. Felix Edison who is our face and leader in the community continue with his hard work in making Cabarete and Sosua a better place for the kids and their education. 

We need collaborators and volunteers to edit blogs, train the kids, and keep posting our progress in social media networks. Contact us to be part of the project. Let's get it done!

Thanks!

Dear Friends & Supporters,

Hoping this correspondence and summer WiFi Learn project update finds everyone doing well.

Since the last report, I have many positive progress updates to pass along.

Beginning with the many community meetings our team has engaged in with North Coast community leaders we have been able to assess first hand where the needs for this optimized WiFi internet access router are most prevalent. Also, and very importantly, these on-site meetings helped our team gain an infrastructural “readiness” snapshot of each proposed location, whether near a school, ball field, or community center.

Upon now evaluating our best options to implement our first installations, my team has identified two specific neighborhoods which have demonstrated the best combination of infrastructural readiness, large concentrations of younger students, and the highest need. 

We have also been fortunate to have received an unexpected donation of a number of used laptop computers from local Boston communities which, in tandem with our specialized/customized and optimized WiFiLearn router, will provide actual workstations where those who do not have a computer, which VERY few do here, now will be able to do so and within a community Educational resource center like environment.

These North Coast Dominican communities understand how important Educational access and internet connectivity is to their future and the future of their children and my team will do everything possible to help them

Please consider making a tax deductible contribution to this project as I and my team are wholeheartedly committed to help serve the educational needs of those here, who are most in need. 

If you have questions regarding the technology we will be employing, want to learn more, or get directly involved with this project, please feel free to contact me directly at 617-659-1831

Thank you & Sincerely,

Hernani Del Guidice

Dear Friends & Supporters,

 

It is a pleasure to reconnect with everyone regarding the next steps in the progress we have made to implement our area wide free high speed Internet access to help serve those underprivileged youth and adults living in Dominican North Coast communities.  

Part of our excitement is due to our sharing the announcement that our new hotspot system based on cloud technologies is almost ready!  We estimate that within the next month our first hotspot will be placed in one of local neighborhood’s (La Cienega) school.  

During the last couple of months, the board chairman of Sosua75.org, Mr. Hugh Baver has been on the ground visiting with local communities to further investigate alternative collaboration methods of adopting and promoting this enabling technology centering around Sports and education.  

We are currently seeking additional collaborators who can provide talks and workshops for children and adults in Spanish to introduce these people to the new technologies and awaken the curious minds ready for exploration of all the wonderful educational opportunities the Internet provides.  There are many ways you can help by contributing to this project as we continue to grow and your financial contributions truly do make a significant difference.  

As I welcome your feedback, please do not hesitate to reach out to me with any questions or suggestions you may have

Thank you!

        It's been an exciting few months for WifiLearn.org! Free access to educational information via the Internet must be a reality in all places on the planet. During the last few months, we have been working towards achieving this goal by reducing deployment costs while simultaneously making sure the WiFi Learn system is easily accessible to install and join all over the world and in any community. 

Currently, our first hotspot system needs backup systems, firewalls and powerful physical servers to operate, which until we properly fund acquiring them on a low budget is a disadvantage for the growth of the network. Our team has designed a proposed new HotSpot solution, our WifiLearn Cloud Controller Beta, which is supported by cloud technology whereby its biggest advantage is that all processing and heavy infrastructure, control systems, and statistics remain in the cloud.
 
The access terminals are average wifi routers that are linked to the WifiLearn Cloud Controller through a VPN to provide access to educational content. With few installation requirements, this new concept allows any user to extend or install a WiFiLearn node anywhere using Plug-and-Play technology. These access routers have the built-in WIFI and LAN ports to share or extend network access with conventional Wi-Fi equipment.
 
We invite all who read this report to make Charitable contributions to help us in the development of this vital educational platform for these underserved yet deserving children, individuals, and communities.

Thank you!
