Living in a wired and connected world, it is difficult to imagine that only 10% of Ugandans have access to the Internet, but UNICEF is trying to increase the country's access to modern technology and information by using innovative, low-cost technology to create Digital Drums.
The sturdy, low-cost, solar-powered computer is made of local materials, predominantly metal oil drums. The welded oil drum computers also come with solar panels, waterproof keyboards, low cost laptops and of course, pre-loaded content. The objective is to put them in remote villages and towns where schools have few full-time teachers. Ultimately, the hope is that these solar-powered digital oil drum computers can provide information to students, increasing the amount of children receiving a fair education in rural Uganda.
