The organization recently launched Lyantonde Internet Center; a solar powered facility that will help the organization implement ICT projects in Lyantonde district and the other districts in southwestern Uganda. The launch began with a bicycle race where youth competed for a new bicycle and other prizes. 5 community groups are taking part in a program at the Center that provides them with better access to information important in their daily lives (farming, health, education, etc). Selected group members are being trained in computer and Internet use, and will collect information that their communities have requested from the Internet. The Center is also open 7 days a week to the public, providing Internet access.
