The Kalahari Peoples Fund has been in operation for thirty years now. Founded by Harvard anthropologists as a way of giving back to San communities which had supported their research, KPF quickly became a powerful voice in human rights, land rights and other important issues affecting San communities and individuals issues like health, education and development. As part of an ongoing educational programme, which began with the establishing of the Village Schools Project (VSP) in the Nyae Nyae region of northern Namibia, an electronic communications network was envisioned in 2007 and officially launched in 2008. It is part of KPF and closely connected. We call it the Kalahari Peoples Network. The Village Schools Programme has now been taken over by the Namibian government but some of the children who attended the first pilot pre-school in Nyae Nyae twenty years ago are literate in two, maybe three languages and sometimes speak several others. They need, desire, want and deserve to be connected to the wider web of communication in the world. Let nobody imagine this is easy. Even in larger centres, issues of computer availability, electricity and connectivity pose huge obstacles. Nobody has to fight harder to be electronically empowered than those who are already disadvantaged by history and geography. The young San people we are working with are not only up for the task, they are vigorously encouraged by an older generation who saw how western education was necessary, and now view western technology in the same positive way. It is our privilege as well as our responsibility to make this happen.
