Rural Communities Access to Information Society (RUCCESS) – Interim Report

Rural Communities Access to Information Society (RUCCESS) – Interim Report

ISOC Nepal’s Rural Communities Access to Information Society will put community access hubs in rural schools, community centers, and village development offices. It will also focus on training women how to use social media, including Facebook and Viber, to stay in touch with their sons and husbands. (In many of these communities, men go away to work, leaving women and children behind.) The hubs will pay for themselves by charging for things like printing and scanning.
