Rural Information Access (Digital Drum)

Digital Drum

The Digital Drum is designed to help rural communities in Uganda that have difficulty getting information about health, education and other issues. These solar powered computer kiosks, which come loaded with educational content, are made of locally available metal oil drums and built to be durable and rugged.

In 2012, UNICEF Uganda will install an initial 50 units, with another 150 sites already identified.
