Three Acacia-Connectivity Africa Projects.

These three short pieces document three initiatives supported by IDRC.  In Zanzibar, Tanzania, a workshop that illustrates and teaches participants how to use, manage, and develop wireless networks for the Internet.  In South Africa, the usage of PDAs in the rollout of antiretroviral therapy to treat AIDS.  In Uganda, training the war affected to use ICTs to foster new livelihoods.  Click on the image to the left to see photography of the three regions.  To watch the videos, click on Hi or Lo depending on the speed of your connection and your media player.
