O Foundation (OFDN) is amplifying the voices of underrepresented communities using Openness.
The Internet is broken! It was probably intended to be open, universally-accessible and for the public good at large. But, it’s still a representation of neo-colonization as the content and participation of marginalized communities are almost missing—such communities don’t have the same level of access like the others and their security is at a stake.We believe that knowledge equity should start with empowering communities.
OUR FOCUS AREAS
Train community leaders using open resources so that they train the whole community
Research & BUILD Open Resources
Identify “knowledge gaps” on the Internet & co-create resources (Open Source tools, OER, Open data)
develop community Media
Train communities develop independent media and grow content about their own people.
