Type of Project Activity Project which enable ICT4D environment
Project URL http://www.zinclink.com/
Brief Description The project seeks to bring the power of the internet to the devastated inner city communities of Kingston, Jamaica, through a series of community internet cafés. Zinc Link offers an interactive CD based computer training course and signs up everyone with an e-mail address as soon as they are ready. We provide educational software for the under twelve's and encourage the use of the many excellent children's web sites now out there. The vast majority of users are complete novices and so, in contrast to a "first world" internet café, where users are already computer literate. Our users need help to get started.
