Babulaidze and Tcharelidze were part of a team building a solar-powered wireless network bringing broadband to Tusheti, and had just installed a connection at Khvedaguridze's home. Bochorna is said to be the highest continuously settled place in Europe. During the long winter, when the road to Tusheti is impassable, 76 year-old Khvedaguridze is the village's sole resident. He is the local doctor, and must go out on his homemade skis if his services are required by one of the very few people who stay in Tusheti during the winter. The project was a joint effort between several organizations including the Internet Society, Small & Medium Telecom Operators Association, the Tusheti Development Fund and Freenet. It aims to support Tushetians’ ability to build economic opportunities while preserving their heritage, traditions, and ways of life.

Low level of computer literacy of parents is a serious problem

If you do not know how to protect yourself from Internet threats - you can not protect your children. According to statistics, 75% of parents consider themselves sufficiently competent in matters of child protection when working with a computer. Self-monitoring is an important aspect in shaping the child's behavior in the network. Adults should set an example of how to behave in the network, observe the established mode of using the computer, do not store information in the computer that is undesirable for children.

Community Mapping for Flood Prevention

Community Mapping for Flood Prevention

Devastating floods occur bi-annually in Tanzania. Dar Ramani Huria – ‘Dar Open Map’ in Swahili, is a community mapping project in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. The project works with local people to provide training in the technical skills needed to map Dar’s infrastructure for flood resilience planning. Local community members use open source software on basic Android phones to map the drainage systems, in order to better understand how to improve these to reduce vulnerability to flooding in informal urban neighbourhoods. The objective of this project, implemented by Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team, is to improve urban planning and risk reduction by providing open, accessible maps to all members of society.
