The Kijiji Yeetu Community Network project, led by the Internet Society Kenya Chapter, aims to provide low-cost and secure connectivity to underserved communities in Ugunja, Kenya. The project's goal is to bridge the digital divide and enable residents to access vital government services, educational resources, and business opportunities. It involves the installation of community network nodes in public schools, institutions, and health centers. The project also includes training local community members as net wardens to maintain and manage the network.
