Community Grants Programme
Blog for Chapter Grantees to provide updates on their projects to the greater ISOC community
Dear Fellow ISOC Grantees and the entire ISOC family,
We proudly bring you a progressive update about our project; “Enabling the People of Ibanda to Access Internet”
We have so far gone three months into the implementation of this project; the project that has enabled the creation of the first Internet Centre in Ibanda Sub-county. From the time the centre was launched on 4th January 2011, the internet has been open to users/beneficiaries and trainings are going on.
Everything has gone smoothly (as planned) throughout this period. The Internet centre was established as planned and is serving the intended purpose in a very fruitful way. All players came on board and performed excellently. IT training is being carried out thoroughly especially for the registered members of Ibanda Communities Transformation and the people of Ibanda now have access to high speed and reliable internet. They no longer have to travel 110 kilometers to go to the nearest town for internet.
During these past months of implementation, it is coming out very strongly that internet is a needed service in this Sub County. Many people (including those from the neighboring sub counties) flock the centre everyday for internet. We have learnt that in future, we will face the task of expanding the centre to be able to meet the demands of this enormous need by creating branches in the neighboring sub counties or by encouraging community based organizations in those sub counties to take up the initiative of starting such a project for their people.
