Internet Society Grant to Enable Internet Connectivity in Lascahobas, Haiti

The Internet Society has awarded a Community Grant to a partnered project that will bring Internet connectivity to Lascahobas, Haiti, in August 2011. The partners in this project are: Illinois Institute of Technology (IIT Empowering Haiti), Green WiFi, OLPC Haiti, and Inveneo

The schools in the village of Lascahobas are part of a One Laptop per Child (OLPC) project in Haiti. At present, the schools lack two key conditions for realizing project success: electricity and Internet connectivity. The “IIT Empowering Haiti” team has been working with OLPC Haiti, under the mentorship of Green WiFi, to design and implement a solar powering solution so that the laptops may be charged at the schools. The Internet Society Grant will enable an after-school cyber-learning center and two primary schools to be connected to the Internet.
