Internet For All


We at HEED have embraced a Mission statement that compels us to participate in activities that lead to prevention and/or alleviation of poverty and its’ offshoots in under-served communities such as those found in less developed countries.

HEED is thus involved in forming viable partnerships with groupings from under-served communities in as far as commissioning and running development projects.

HEED has through surveys discovered that, communication of any kind is needed in any scenario that involves development issues such as development projects. The usual modes of transmitting information to and from groups that are targeted for development projects, include postage, usage of telephones and usage of faxes.

Though efficient, however, the latter modes of communication are not effective enough in as far as transmission of development information is concerned. The main reason for this is that most support organisations worldwide, such as NGOs, are steadily moving away from mass usage of postage, telephones and faxes when transmitting information on development issues. The globally preferred mode of communicating development information is the use of the Internet.

The high levels of efficiency coupled with cost effectiveness that are associated with the Internet have compelled many organisations to rely on the Internet when publicising information on development issues to the whole world. Suffice it to mention that the Internet is in-fact “an information highway” which is one of the cornerstones in today’s world which is in-fact globalized in as far as development project planning is concerned.

This realization compelled HEED to establish the Internet for All Program. Under this program HEED assists needy organizations by facilitating the process of mobilization of financial resources for acquisition of computers that are Internet compatible from donors. The said facilitation entails co-ordination of activities that are related to mobilization of financial aid. Where requested by donors, HEED continuously monitors and evaluates progress and/or success levels of projects that receive funding for computers and Internet installation from specific donors.

It must be emphasized that due to the relatively high cost of investment, HEED encourages the idea of Community Based Internet Link, which allows for a few computers with Internet connections being installed in specific nuclei to serve the Internet usage needs of many people. Schools, churches or community centres serve as ideal nuclei for installation of Community Based Internet Links. Community members in such cases are compelled to pay for services that will in-fact be a lot cheaper than usage of postage, phones and faxes. HEED obviously realises the high levels of computer illiteracy in most under-served communities. In cases where computer training is required, HEED refers individuals and organisations the Training and Mentorship Program that is run by HEED.
