Documentary on Rural Internet Kiosks in Africa

Few hours ago I heard that my friend Jawahar Patani finished the documentary about Rural Internet Kiosks(RIK) project. I have been helping this project for while now. I hope that this documentary would spread the word about this wonderful initiative.

Please visit to learn more about this project.

About the Documentary

This short documentary features ICT development in Africa with emphasis on how the Rural Internet Kiosk (RIK) is changing the way rural Africa communicates. The Rural Internet Kiosk is 100% solar powered and is connected to the Internet via Satellite using Astra2Connect VSAT technology.

You can watch the part 1 and part 2 of this documentary on youtube.


  1. Wow those were very interesting videos. Nice find!

    Keep up the good work!

  2. Also wanted to note that we will be using virtualized Ubuntu desktops which addresses power consumption, therefore making the solar solution very viable.
    Also with Arky's help, we are testing Orca's features on the multi-user platform.
    Using a web reader such as AnyDaisy can also increase accessibility not only for seeing impaired, but for those whom written English is not their first language.

  3. Thanks for sharing information about Kiosks.
