Hello Uganda!

Supported by Lessons for Life Foundation and The Cobalt Trust, Projects For All is delighted to bring Project Hello World to Uganda this October!  We are partnering with Pangea Educational Development​ to build multiple Hello Hubs to connect communities to the Internet and educational software to make possible child-led digital learning and storytelling. 
A Hello Hub is an Internet-enabled rugged, outdoor computer kiosk for education, connectivity, community journalism, business and play. Built with the belief that development must be led, defined by, and serve the community, the Hubs in Uganda will be community-built and maintained.
 
We will keep you updated on our progress in the lead up to, and throughout, the build. Here’s to #EducationForAll

A Year in Numbers at the Hello Hub in Suleja

Introduction:

We at Projects for All have been busy crunching the numbers for our first Hello Hub in Suleja, Nigeria that was built in October 2013. With the help of Laura Castrillo, who generously volunteered her time to help us with the analysis, we are very happy to be able to present one year of user data from our pilot project. We would also like to extend a special thank you to Aliyu Zubairu in Suleja, who has tirelessly helped us collect data on the ground for the past year. We are still amazed by the vast turnout and frequent use of the Hello Hub by members of the community from all walks of life and are very excited to share our findings with you here….

“Well, what do you think?”: Working with Communities to Measure What Matters

"Projects for All’s community-led data collection approach is focused on actively involving and empowering people and communities and not simply on the pure extraction of data.
We want to ask the question to our communities 'Well, what do you think?' "

Virgin and Qualcomm building satellite-based internet provider - great news for Hello Hubs!

Network connectivity will continue to be one of the biggest challanges for building Hello Hub's in disconnected locations. Richard Branson announced today a project to provide worldwide network coverage by a new array of satellites, via his Virgin Group & Qualcomm. We're stoked... more connectivity options = easier Hello Hub builds.
