"Android Village Hubs" initiative has two phases. Currently pilot phase is ongoing successfully and there will be a second phase after completion of three month pilot phase. Huawei Ideos S7 Android Tablets will be distributed between the selected families at each village by giving a chance of experiencing it for a 14 day period.
We have selected two villages from different provinces of Sri Lanka for the pilot phase and those two villages are Bathiyagama from Eastern Province and Panangoda from North Western Province. 6 volunteers from each village have been selected and trained well on using and maintaining Android tabs. These volunteer groups will work under two voluntary leaders and they will take care of the Android Tabs and also will teach the families on how to use the Android Tabs depending on their needs.
In the 3 months pilot phase, 24 families from each village will be getting a chance of experiencing Android Tabs and it will circulate in the future. All these families have been carefully selected by considering the number of members in the family, their educational level, their occupation and interest toward this project.
