OUr focus areas

Research šŸ”

Just like the participation of underrepresented communities on the Internet, the information about them is also largely missing on the Internet. A big part of our work is to learn from the native speakers about their challenges and collecting data about the knowledge gaps.

BUILD Open Resources āš™

People are the power! We work closely with communities, engage with them through consensus, to co-create open resources (Open Source tools, Open Educational Resources, Open data) after identifying the areas need the most attention and intervention.

Community Capacity building šŸ‘„

Based on our assessment of a community’s need, we provide trainings using open curriculum design, open methodologies and other open resources.

Media development šŸŽ„

Media development is a key part of our work which cuts across all our activities. We also have been developingĀ  toolkit (see OpenSpeaks, our indigenous language toolkit) for remote trainings.
