then we can all get across.”
– Solomon (Adenta Gathering Place, Accra, Ghana)

COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT NETWORK (CDN)
We bridge people with resources. CDN focuses on 3 pillars:
(1) Training; (2) Content; (3) Tech Access Points.
Knowledge Worth Knowing Is Worth Sharing
We open access to digital learning tools, best practices & innovative tech solutions. Open Content for Development (OC4D) is available for free via app, website, or wifi community hot-spot offline (RACHEL).
Locals Know What Locals Need
CDN works with local champions for acupuncture-style development. We support programs designed by locals for locals.
Gathering Places: All Are Welcome
Our youth-led tech centers offer community-based knowledge sharing. Digital learning tools and 1-to-1 mentoring expand educational & income-generating opportunities. Gather to learn; go out to teach.
Youth Service Ambassadors (YSA): Leading the Way
We focus on YSAs to reach all community members. As inter-generational gurus, our YSAs build bridges to knowledge with tailored tools for elders & youth.
