WendiLoshaBernadette and NjuaGeraldine of ActwidKongadzem: July 20, 2006, Holistic Helping Dear Franz and Andrius, We are happy to read the information about the Linux internet access pointing to Rusinga Island. Could it not point to Cameroon too? We pray that someday somehow this dream can also reach us here in Cameroon because, since the year 2000 , this has been our dream to have an internat access pointing to Cameroon. What do you think about that Andrius and Franz? Immense thanks for listening.
Mendenyo, May 16, 2007 One of the big isues that is ongoing is the challenge of Internet access in Africa. While it is better, I understand, than it was, say, five years ago, it is still a major constraint on being effective. The technology to have broadband connectivity to the Internet has been developed .. but where is it deployed in Africa, and what are the costs and prices relating to using broadband Internet access. I don't know what the answer to this is going to be, but it needs to be solved ... and at the moment it seems that neither governmental initiatives, corporate initiatives nor the UN/multilateral community are at all on track to solving the problem any time soon.
Holistic Helping, July 14, 2007 Dear Andrius, We have been reading your postings in the group and have been wondering how our dream of networking with you all using the wireless internet connection can work out. We all admire what others are doing by networking in their regions but we are stillpleading to you and others who are experts in these connections to work out a way for us to be connected to any of our holistichelping groups anywhere. We strongly feel that if you and others in our groups think deeplyas experts, you will see how you can get us connected by wireless internet. We really need a direct connection,so as to be able to link up and be able to follow and tore the line with others globally. What do you really think about this our dream? Thank you immensely for listening. Sincerely ACTWID KONGADZEM members led by WendiLoshaBernadette
August 1, 2007 Dear Andrius, We have read with keen interest the information you have given concerning your Communia project with the European Union come september 2007. We also see the efforts you are making to connect other Africans like Samuele who is also suffering like us. We wish to let you know that we have and are still crying out aloud to you and other friends at HolisticHelping to assist us here to have a wireless internet connection. We wish to let you know that three days ago we managed and contributed some money and added to what you gave us last time and bought a cell phone that someone here showed us that since we have a pentium 3 computer, we should buy this L6 Cell phone and it will be easier for us to connect to the internet. Now after having a computer and this L6 ,we lack the technical know-how to get this connection operational so that we can really relief ourselves from this burden of not being able to read all information sent to us due to the expensive internet hours sold here in cybers. Our two problems to you now are;
AndriusKulikauskas August 1, 2007 14:28 CET: Wendi and all, I share your important letter with our groups. I am writing a larger proposal that will address your situation:
RichardOuma, August 1, 2007, SocialAgriculture, Hi Andrius It seems most of the African countries are having a similar problems. For I live in Gulu, Northern Uganda,but as if we sat together with Wendi and wrote the challenges met in communication technology. Therefore how can a person like me in Gulu acess to your services?
Dearest Andrius, Janet, Richard,Steve and all, We are very pleased with the emails you have exchanged with us and with our group members of Holistichelping and Social Agriculture concerning our long term identified felt-need for a wireless internet connection and other communication needs. It is a truism that Janet and Franz Nahrada know how we have been struggling to write projects and fill grant application forms to get funding for these needs in vain. We are indeed grateful as you have informed us that you are writing a larger project that will serve or satisfy our communication needs. We all say thank you immensely for all these endeavours. We will like to let you know that what KAIPPG- Kenya is doing is exactly what we had identified to do here and we are very determined to cooperate and collaboration very well to achieve this goal which has been our wonderful miletone , searched for several years since the inception of the dreams.We have prayed over thiese needs several times and we now strongly feel that it will be achievable through you at Holistichelping and Social Agriculture groups . Andrius, it is a truism that we are really desperately in need of this wireless internet so that we can fully get connected to you all at our groups and get connected to the whole world too in order to improve and raise our standards of living through communication skills which will increase our knowledge and that of our entire local communities here in Cameroon,as we will used these communication tools to earn some little income too ,expand of networks here and other African countries by sharing skills and experiences in issues of proper nutrition for poor rural women/youths/children living with HIV/AIDS and those too that are interested in cultivating ,processing and consumption/sales of the medicinal herb tea for Malaria treatment ARTEMESIA, together with other herbs. As farmers too we are growing alongside a variety of fruita and vegetables as well as food crops that can improve Nutritionwhich we will like to share. We will train others in village groups on the use of computers, cellphones,radio,videos and internet on a small fee charged like KAIPPG and make linkages of these groups to others around the globe.We are appy now that you will,' Make it Happen'to us as we have been crying and thinking aloud and Janet. Andrius, since you have been hoping to make progress with 'A 'in the next few months by looking for ways or small work that we can do so that we stay connected and work toards B' and C' is really a good idea and we will like to be the A' sample group for you to start with.We are very ready to start at any momment that you are ready. All the suggestions you have made or will make are ideal for all of us as we hadeven made random selections of our own members within the groups who are very keen and interested in being trained technically with skills in creating and expanding our own local wireless internet and the use of other communication devices. So providing us too with information on how to create local wirelessand expand within us and other neighbouring villages etc is imperative. Yes, we already wrote a project which will be forwarded to you. Janet also had a copy. We will try to find a copy to send to you. Immense thanks for all we have shared together and we shall remain in touch with you all. Sincerely, ACTWID KONGADZEM Board members led by Wendi.
One Laptop Per Child Wiki also lists non-internet communication methods, like radio, Wi-Fi, Satellite providers and a USB Flash Drive Sneakernet email system linking to an internet computer. Bluetooth Usage and USB cable from mobile phone to the computer you can get internet still.

Come back if you want more info.

Wed, 09 Jan 2008 18:21:08 UTC Patrick Bunyali Kamoyani: I live in a remote villege in Western Province of Kenya and I made a break through on wireless internet connection in December 2006. Its simple and very easy, more so cheap than any cybercafe I ever came across. This technolofy employs use of computer and mobile phone via bluetooth or infrared.
