Honduras Chapter in partnership with Red De Desarrollo Sostenible
Category: Access and Development
Azacualpa-Yamaranguila is a community isolated from development and connectivity suffering of limitations in education, health and economic growth. The inhabitants need to travel to the nearest city to access these services facing the lack of efficient transportation. The project aims to connect through a Internet community network 300 families in Azacualpa; to create articles or information on issues relevant to local problems; to promote the right to Internet access through the establishment of a telecentre and hotspots in different points of the community; to decrease the existing digital gap compared to the nearest city, La Esperanza, by at least 70%.
