Digital Learning & entrepreneurship for children's

Maker World - Submitted by Diego Parra on Dec 28 2013

We ofter see in our street child's and young's working, sometimes selling and other performing an act for some coins. We would lie to see them studying but their families are so poor that every member of the family must make heir own living. First Digital learning would allow these child's to study during the nights, and will help them to eventually develop a business that generate revenues for them and their families, allowing them to enjoy their childhood and secure a better future.

It is a difficult subject, with sensitive issues, but doing something is better that delivering a coin or simply ignoring them. The government is not good enough, I am afraid, to deliver solutions. Lets do it our selfs.

NOW it's your turn...

There are cheap solutions for building low cost wifi hubs called WUG's which require a base station and an Mast arial on your highest point and then you can connect with mobile phones when you have line of sight.

The problem is building infrustructure that is cheap and also secure but the main thing that will halt any progress is when you haven't established community buy in.
