Wireless network for Actwid Kongadzem in Cameroon
- Wendi and all,
I share your important letter with our groups. I am writing a larger
proposal that will address your situation:
* A) first by allowing you to participate more fully even with marginal
Internet access by enabling you to download all of our activity and
* B) second by providing you with technical information on how to create
your own local wireless network (allowing for links within and amongst
your villages) and then steadily expanding your network until you
connect with the closest Internet access points.
* C) third by opening up work opportunities so that you can earn money
with offline knowledge work that will pay for your efforts and also for
wireless Internet access points and computers so you can keep expanding
This will be an ongoing effort over several months and even several
years. But my hope is to make progress with A) during the next few
months and look for small work that you can do so that we can stay
connected and work towards B) and C).
Thank you for staying in touch! We are grateful to be connected with
your important work! We are especially encouraged that you are linking
women with ICT, as this is very important for a healthy society, both
locally and globally.
I have updated the page for this endeavor:
and listed it with our proposals:
I haven't been able to find your proposal yet but please send it to our
groups if you have it and lets post it at our wiki.
I invite our thoughts on how we might help and work together.
