RuralWeb – Creating a better & smarter world.
The information that you can find on the internet provides you with all sorts of important information: job vacancies, network possibilities, solutions to question that you have, information form governmental institutions, leisure or fun.
Many people in Africa, Latin America and Asia already have access to the internet (and their number is growing every day!), but a lot of them still lack the means or skills to use it smartly and effectively to find information they need for their personal or professional goals. That is why we work on RuralWeb: so that everyone around the world can benefit fully from opportunities at internet towards self-sustainability.
HOW we do that? Through open content, made by and for users (content made by and for users from developing countries is currently lacking). Initially, we will have our community at Facebook and Wikiversity and cooperate with local ICT centres in rural-towns.
WHAT: Content at RuralWeb is initially about Entrepreneurship and ICT-skills. But we embrace any topic that users feel we together should elaborate.
RuralWeb’s future dream
- RuralWeb as a trustworthy and easy accessible library for and by people from developing countries.
- To have co-creation as Wikipedia, as many searches as Google, and as many users as Facebook, or more!
- To have a joined voice (and significant while we grow!) of ICT centres in developing countries for local stakeholders to understand the importance of internet – for improved access to internet, better education for ICT skills, etc.
- To have RuralWeb in French & Spanish available.
- And finally, to have ICT skilled people all around the world, who are able to find their ways in all the opportunities that internet provides us.
Help us building our dream!
