Pamoja Net Operations and Sustainability (Democratic Republic of Congo)

What is the project about?

Pamoja Net is a community network created by the organisation La Différence in 2016. Thanks to Pamoja Net, the population of the island of Idjwi in Lake Kivu (Democratic Republic of Congo) can easily access the internet. The sustainability of Pamoja Net is based on businesses that pay for dedicated access during the working day. These clients make it possible for the community network to provide free Wi-Fi to the community from 16:00 onward. However, there are times when the clients do not pay because of technical issues when the connection is down. The purpose of the project is to put in place a solution that addresses the technical issues and enables Pamoja Net to cover all its costs.
