The Digital Literacy and Inclusion Initiative Program
World economies, workplaces, societies and trade have largely become online ecosystems, which exacerbated by the recent pandemic epidemic has fundamentally changed how humanity functions.
World economies, workplaces, societies and trade have largely become online ecosystems, which exacerbated by the recent pandemic epidemic has fundamentally changed how humanity functions. Eradicating basic aspects of the digital, economic and social divide is summarily important as the new and predominant highway of social, economic and existential interaction is the internet and other connected systems.
Statistics show that 53% of US households do not have a computer or broadband in their home, whereas in Somalia only 2% of households have any form of digital access; the numbers present a “State of the Human Union” where more than 50% will be ineligible to obtain basic livelihoods.
The ominous question has been, how can sustainable, retroflexing, positive and long-termed results or outcomes be realistically accomplished. Instead of measuring success based on work done, where the communal impact is a small percentage of the expenditure. It is important to interpret success in view of ratio of expenditure, impact over a protracted period, community economic indexes, and Knowledge-to-Capability-to-Income conversion rates.
In furtherance of global digital inclusion and participation, which is consequential for global economic development, comprehensive healthcare proliferation and eradication of poverty, Communal Impact Nonprofit Corporation has created some requisite programs for facilitating global digital skills development, socioeconomic literacy and digital economy accessibility for the underprivileged and persons with disability.
Featured and fully-fledged in the program are:
- Free or affordable broadband Internet service.
- Digitally enabled devices.
- Access to digital libraries, education and skill-based training.
- Minimal or self-support implementations.
- Self-sufficient systems that encourage participation and collaboration.
- Broadcasts Radio, TV, rich content multi-media material and On-demand Video.
- Emergency management and disaster relief systems.
- Educational services with courseware in many formats (ebooks, videos, apps).
- Interactive Weather Data
- File delivery and professional support libraries (for farmers, health workers, and others)
Communal Impact uses a few techniques to extend basic accessibility:
- An algorithm for data types; eliminate broadband latency, delivery and provide instant availability.
- Use of a global network of Satellites for free digital access.
- Portable low-cost systems with receivers and local Wi-Fi hotspot.
- WiMAX intranet for local communities.
- Ready to deploy 40-foot container community and school data-centers.
Utilizing a successive piecemeal methodology, the nonprofit impact assortment will overcome prevailing constraints while building basic and sustainable systems for future growth in the realization of augmented communal income and successively laying the groundwork for investor lucrativeness.
The program is essential in supporting other Communal Impact initiatives such as Opportunity Villages and Industrial Outposts.
