About Project

Solution: What is the proposed solution? Please be specific!

Omololu facilitates education and activism in the fight against HIV/Aids through an Internet-based dialogue and a national newsletter. He simultaneously addresses the information divide in Nigeria, caused by computer technology's inaccessibility, through developing a network of people who broadly share their resources or communicate the lessons learned online in a more public forum. He has established channels of communication among Aids workers in West Africa to share experiences and learn from the successes and failures of each country's grassroots, governmental, and corporate response efforts. Omololu also links to similar Internet-based initiatives in order to provide easy cross-referencing and networking.
