This project seeks the implementation of wireless and sustainable communication technologies in the local communities of the Almorzadero páramo, including community radios, satellite communication systems and long-distance communication networks based on WIFi, seeking to improve connectivity and communication between the páramo communities, which will help promote social, economic and cultural development in these isolated areas of peasant tradition. In addition, these communication networks will be used to facilitate the coordination and exchange of information on the conservation and management of natural resources in the páramo, which will contribute to the protection and conservation of these valuable ecosystems.
Thus, the project focuses on promoting the use, management and community participation of peasant women in a wireless Community Network to guarantee communication in their territory as well as Internet access, giving workshops for self-management of the network and benefiting the more than 250 associated women who for nearly 17 years have been forging and strengthening their peasant and community organization. In this way, Colnodo and the members of the community themselves will be able to contribute to such an important undertaking, holding workshops to identify their needs with them and propose solutions that can be provided jointly with the community, strengthening local productive capacities and raising awareness about the risks related to the Internet and information and communication technologies, especially those that affect women and girls. Through a participatory approach that involves community members in all stages of the project, from planning to implementation and maintenance, activities such as training workshops, infrastructure installation, and network performance monitoring will be carried out
