03 Sep / Elevating education these days is synonymous with providing equal access to computers, even in the most remote areas of the world


It all started when Macmillan was staying with the Hamar Tribe in South Omo, on the Ethiopian border with Kenya. According to Macmillan, the Hamar are possibly the most marginalized people on earth and truly desire for their children to be educated, not to mention their existence and story to be documented. Project Hello World was founded by Katrin Macmillan, who has a background in media and aid agency consulting, and Dr. Geoff Wells, an expert in community technology education and sustainable building technology, who believe every community has the cultural capital to begin solving their problems. They wanted help and support to accelerate the process. To Macmillan, education is the key to equality, and could help to lift many out of poverty. The key to the project is something called Hello Hubs, solar-powered computers that allow children to use educational software and play learning and skill-enhancing focused games. At the same time, these hubs collect data that allows Project Hello World staff to note the educational progress and usage of the hub.

“I have lived in Africa for many years. And every vulnerable community that I have lived and worked with has expressed a desire for their children to have a better life, and to tell their story – to exist to the world map. No matter how marginalized and impoverished, all people want to pass on their stories and share their heritage.” – Macmillan
