BOSCO continues to upgrade and extend their community network in Northern Uganda.
Project status: Ongoing
The project aims to upgrade and extend the BOSCO Uganda Network Phase III in the Acholi Sub-Region of Northern Uganda. The project addresses the issue of limited internet access and high costs in Uganda, particularly in rural areas. BOSCO-U plans to upgrade community ICT access points, connect them to the internet, and provide capacity building in rural communities using solar power.
The project has just started. Updates will follow soon!
