Hard Drives for Africa: New Crowdfunding Campaign!
The Theological Book Network is excited to announce the launch of our crowdfunding project: "Digital Libraries for African Christian Colleges" on Indiegogo!
There is a treasure trove of high-quality theological resources available for free on the World Wide Web. Unfortunately, most of our partner schools across Africa are unable to access these resources due to low bandwidth and high internet costs. We need your help to change that.
Here is how this project will work:
We will compile and send digital theological resources to our partner schools by loading them onto external hard drives. The schools receiving hard drives will have no need to connect to the internet to provide these resources to their faculty and students for use on tablets, laptops, and enabled phones.
Our staff has already downloaded and catalogued over 1,000 books and nearly 1,000 audio and video lectures - all available under the Creative Commons license. We will add another 1-2,000 books and audio-visual materials to this collection.
We will then load all of the catalogued digital materials onto external hard drives and ship them to those schools who most need them and are best equipped to provide digital files to their students and faculty.
We need your gift to complete the project by allowing Network staff to:
Identify and curate top-quality resources,
Purchase the hard drives,
Load the materials onto the drives, and
Ship each drive directly to partner schools in Africa.
Your donation will enable thousands of students across Africa to access digital materials otherwise out of reach.
Please visit our campaign website here: Digital Libraries for African Christian Colleges. Your generous gift will allow the Network to help level the digital playing field, and provide access to high-quality materials otherwise out of reach for faculty and students in the Global South.
Please also share the link to the Indiegogo site with friends and family, and on your Facebook/Twitter accounts.
Thank you for your continued support of the Theological Book Network.
