Cameroon helping rural areas with Technology

"They are also mobilizing citizen journalists to foster accountability in the management of Cameroon’s water system though ICT through mapping and citizen reporting of water point problems and delivering reports to local authorities and NGOs to address these problems.  A further project aims to digitise Cameroonian laws, create videos which help explain these laws in layman terms, provide online legal advice and host discussion forums.  They also run a Cyber Safety Programme, net squared and training in ICT skills for University drop outs."

These all look like great ideas for empowering local rural communities.  I look forward to hearing about their progress.
