Most rural schools in the developing world do not have access to electricity and the benefits of computer software with Internet access. GSI solves that problem by installing solar powered computer networks with open-source educational software developed by teachers and other education professionals. GSI partners with supporting organizations to ensure a successful installation with appropriate training and long term support for a truly sustainable solution.
The solar electricity allows the school to be open at night with room and task lighting and cooling fans. Students have a place to study, adult classes can be held, and small businesses can take advantage of this community resource. Audio visual equipment can now be used in teaching and the communications capability of the Internet opens the door to the world for the students.
The camera and speakers allow your students to Skype (video conference) with “twinning” schools in the US or elsewhere thus creating communication and the sharing of ideas and resources.
We provide complete hardware and software solutions and can build one to suit your particular rural school. If you have a potential site and can raise the money for installation then we have a product ready to be installed. We are a full-fledged EPC (Engineer, Procure, and Construct) company who is partnering with complementary organizations for long term, sustainable solutions.
