Our grant request for this year’s Chapterthon has been approved and planning is well underway.
This year’s theme is: Connecting the Unconnected.
We’ll be travelling to the rural Eastern Cape, where we’ll be training 5 people to set up and maintain networks in their community. We’ll also give them vouchers so that they call sell the bandwidth to the local community members, thereby giving them access to fast and affordable internet.
The long term goal is to enable these community members to earn an income and make it possible for them to expand the network to local villages, thereby increasing internet access in an area that is critically under served.
