“If we build our bridge together,
then we can all get across.”

– Solomon (Adenta Gathering Place, Accra, Ghana)


CDN builds knowledge bridges by connecting communities with training, scholarships, and educational resources.

CDN bolsters local partners with local & international experts to strategize, plan, design & execute programs.

CDN tools include: innovative ideas, knowledge-sharing, strategic planning, technical training, in-kind goods, mentoring, and financial support.


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.
