Digitally Democratizing Education

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Pioneering nonprofit 'Projects For All' is democratizing access to education by implementing digital infrastructure (Hello Hubs) in developing countries. Recently, the nonprofit launched ‘Project: Hello World’, an installation of digital, internet-enabled, kiosks in African communities. The Hello Hubs deliver educational tools, internet connectivity and a place in the 'Granny Cloud' digital mentoring program, while providing protection against human right violation by enabling community journalism.

'Projects For All' Founder Katrin Macmillan, FreshGrade Partner/Founder Lane Merrifield, and 'Projects For All' Advisory Board member, Sophie Kelly, will discuss the importance of entrepreneurial approaches to development work, why we are focusing on digital education and connectivity for equality, how 'Projects For All' overcomes the logistical challenges of reaching remote communities, and the importance of sustained digital programs in creating long-term change.
