Led by Maendeleo Foundation, the Connect Uganda project installs solar panels in libraries to power laptops and internet connections. Librarians train farmers to use the computers and go online to look for the information they need. Through interviews, the video discusses the project and its results. [Filmed on location in Uganda; 5 min 31 sec.]


The Connect Uganda project was initiated with support from the EIFL Public Library Innovation Programme (EIFL-PLIP) in 2012.
