Descriptions

100 words:

Extended Village is a social and digital experiment in partnership with Global Hope Network International to help make a big world just a little smaller by using digital technologies to connect the world.  AJ & Melissa Leon will be educating and working with tribal leaders and local staff in two African rural villages (in Kenya and Ethiopia) on the use of new media and cloud based technologies to empower them to tell their own story and connect with the world in new ways.

We are passionate about the use of new, emerging and real time technology to truly connect the world.  Our primary goal is to educate and empower the communities of Ola Nagele (in Kenya) and Garmaam (in Ethiopia) to use social media and digital content creation to tell their stories and connect with the world.  We will also be training them in the use of web and mobile applications to drastically improve their communication and collaboration.
