The development of Afrikalan is carried out on a 100% voluntary basis. The collected donations are entirely used to finance the equipment in educational computers of schools, libraries, etc… For this reason the donations are not directly collected by the development team of Afrikalan itself, but by trusted associations deploying Afrikalan in West Africa.
La majorité des équipements Afrikalan se font au Mali, grâce à l’action de l’association française Bilou Toguna. Bilou Toguna est solidarité internationale agissant au Mali dans différents domaines: eau, éducation, santé. Bilou Toguna a équipé plus de 100 bibliothèques maliennes en ordinateurs éducatifs et continue ces actions.
You can visit the Bilou Toguna website to learn more about the association and the actions carried out (French language).
The actions in Mali are still continuing despite the current situation. No one is sent to dangerous areas, but long-standing ties with people living in the cities where we operate, as well as with the competent administrations, make it possible to send and maintain equipment, train teachers and monitor the project remotely from Bamako.
The best way to make Afrikalan grow is that other associations carrying out international solidarity actions in the field of education to take it over and distribute it elsewhere. All developments made for Afrikalan are under free license for this purpose.
We are available to respond to any request for technical assistance in this regard. If wide distribution is planned, it is possible to work together to translate certain activities into other languages.
Do you or a friend of yours have a Raspberry pi sleeping in a closet? We can give him a second life in Mali where he will make people happy.
