NRIDS Needs Your Help – Solve the Connectivity Crisis in Syangja, Nepal

Computer centers in the Syangja district of Nepal are facing a connectivity crisis.  Entire villages get email and browse the internet through the equivalent of the cellular phone you carry in your pocket.

Cellular internet bandwidth is billed by the minute.  As NRIDS information centers become increasingly popular costs are rising to prohibitive levels.  Often, shared connections at cellular speeds are not fast enough to support today’s high bandwidth internet.

Stuck on slow connections, many rural Nepali communities are being cut off from the electronic resources the western world takes for granted.

NRIDS has a plan to solve the connectivity crisis.  Using the same inexpensive wi-fi hardware installed in homes and coffeshops throughout the western world, NRIDS hopes to build a wireless repeater on a high ridge-top at Kharsuko Lake.

NRIDS has technically skilled volunteers willing to implement this project for free, but has no funds to purchase the necessary radios and antennas.  All it takes to make this network possible is USD $8000.  Please donate now by clicking the button to the right of this page and help connect residents of Syanjga with each other and the rest of the world.
