Project Overview

This Internet Society Community Grant enabled our partnered team to bring Internet connectivity to the school of Lascahobas, Haiti. Internet connectivity took place in the second stage of our project: we first installed a 2.4 KiloWatt solar pv powering system at a primary school (the EFACAP school) in Laschaobas, Haiti, and returned in December, 2011, to connect this school to the Internet. Their internet, wifi, and all related connectivity equipment is solar-powered. We worked with the locally-based Haitian technicians (previously trained by project partner Inveneo) to install the Internet equipment and connect the school to the long-distance WiFi link in Lascahobas. We subsequently trained the teachers and administration in how to access web pages and the school server, and how to set up email addresses.
