This is an intro to our pilot project in Rusinga Island, Lake Victoria. We've already raised enough for them to get a laptop, antenna/modem kit and some other bits and pieces, all just from faucets, PTC etc.
Evens Odula shows us around the permaculture project, where they have recently (May/June) planted over 30,000 trees. There will be video about that soon, this is just an overview of the place. Once set up, this will be 100% peer-to-peer direct sponsorship, you'll be able to communicate freely with the participants, and if you go through the clickforafrica site, Crypto transfers will cost nothing (i.e. no fees).
The purpose of the project is to ensure that the people of the community are fully self-sufficient in food, shelter, fuel and clean water.
There is also a school there, which is on our list to get hooked up to the internet too. There is no NGO involved in our project, it's just us.
Once fully proven, the system will be open to others to add projects that lead to freedom. The system itself is currently cobbled together from lots of different bits, but once complete our intention is to make the whole thing open source.
If any of this gives you questions, please feel free to ask!
