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.(more..)
We aim to
Research & BUILD Open Resources
Identify “knowledge gaps” on the Internet & co-create resources (Open Source tools, OER, Open data)
Train community leaders using open resources so that they train the whole community
develop community Media
Train communities develop independent media and grow content about their own people.
