Nicaragua’s National School Connectivity Plan Offering far-away school children access to the digital world

In less than six months, an ITU pioneering project in Nicaragua has provided children at five remote schools with computers, electricity and Internet access. It has also put social and economic development tools in the hands of the communities in which the schools are located. Just to reach these isolated schools proved to be a logistic challenge.  In some locations, the project team had to use a helicopter, four-wheel drive vehicles and even carts pulled by oxen to carry materials.
