Funds for telecentre implementation/Sam-Tom-Pam-David-others?
- Dear Pam and All,Thanks for this posting! Coincidentally I received the same from Cameron Sinclair of AFH yesterday, and was thinking last night abt Sam, Tom, David, yourself, and others who might be interested. Am also sending to GRASSUP partners too: I think in Kenya and Tanzania we could develop a "critical" mass whereby so many of our friends here could benefit.Ditto Nigeria, of course, though I'm thinking now abt MS-linked folks, and more so far seem to be from Kenya and EA.Will be hoping to work on this, and bring in Jeff/Joy/OVF and others too! Janet

Here is an opportunity for a community or organisation to win $250,000 for
the implemention of an innovative and sustainable telecentre solution.
The Open Architecture Challenge is an open international design
competition that reaches beyond the traditional bounds of architecture by
challenging industry professionals and others to develop innovative and
sustainable solutions to improve living conditions around the world.
Every two years this initiative will tackle a different systemic issue
faced by half the world's population that is living on less than $2 a day.
Open Architecture Challenge is currently in the process of inviting local
organizations in communities that lack connectivity and would benefit from
a technology center or telecentre. This initiative will provide up to
$250,000 for the implementation of the selected winning design.
If you are an organization that is interested in becoming the recipient of
such a facility and would like to partner on this initiative please find
details in the link below.
Deadline: July 20 2007
The challenge is organized by Architecture for Humanity and Advanced Micro
