Project KNOW (Knowledge on Wheels)
In order to spread the light of knowledge and computer education in remote rural areas, Global Foundation has initiated Project KNOW (Knowledge on Wheels). Global Foundation conceptualized and created a state of the art bus equipped with its own generator set, air conditioners and eight computers all networked and loaded with the relevant software for teaching computers. This vehicle moves from one school to another in the identified remote area, where village schools can be covered. The vehicle halts at a particular school for 20 days and provides computer education to children in batches.
