Nicaragua: Reconnecting isolated regions

In 2015, TSF identified the Autonomous Region of the North Caribbean (RACCN) to implement a new project bringing connectivity and digital education to this isolated zone. This particular region of Nicaragua – notably Tasba Pain where TSF implemented its project - remains one of the poorest and most isolated regions where the lack of communications and internet access enclaves its population.


TSF, in collaboration with PLAN International Nicaragua, created a classroom equipped with technology for inhabitants of Tasba Pain to have direct access to a virtual library made available on the network put in place.
Inhabitants of the town can use the virtual library to access information on health issues, protection, social services and education as well as a world of information using universal encyclopaediae. Pupils from the local school, students and teachers all have access to the classroom.


In 2016, the project was scaled up in the RACCN, reaching a further 3 communities, plus 3 communities in the neighbouring region of Madriz.







Pilot project:
 Autonomous Region of the North Caribbean Coast (RACCN) – Tasba Pain
o 266 beneficiaries

 Autonomous Region of the North Caribbean Coast (RACCN) – 3 communities
o 2,620 beneficiaries (655 families)
 Department of Madriz – 3 communities
o 1,158 beneficiaries (545 families)
