Get Involved

One of the most exciting things about The WiderNet Project is the seemingly limitless number of possibilities for expansion, refinement and growth.

But with limitless potential comes the need for a large team of people who share our vision of bridging gaps in educational inequalities between rich and poor countries.

When you support The WiderNet Project and the eGranary Digital Library, you'll help information-starved people gain access to a world of knowledge they've never known.

Become a Partner or Sponsor
The WiderNet Project and our partners and sponsors work together to provide affordable Information Communication Technology so that people in developing nations and communities can gain access to knowledge.

Give Money
When you make a donation to The WiderNet Project through the University of Iowa Foundation, you're helping to bridge the digital divide and bring knowledge and Internet resources to the seven out of eight people world wide who cannot access the Internet.

Donate Hardware or Software
If you have some used computers, networking equipment or software to shake loose, please consider making a donation to The WiderNet Project.

Donate Content for the eGranary Digital Library
With over 30 million educational resources, we're always looking for more. If you have educational content that you believe could be beneficial to those in developing nations, let us know and we will include it in the next version of the eGranary.

Volunteer Your Time
The WiderNet Project provides a meaningful volunteer experience that utilizes your skills or trains you in new ones, while offering a flexible schedule and a laid-back office environment.

Share Your Knowledge
We're actively pursuing existing digital collections, websites and documents with an educational objective.

Every contribution - money, equipment, content or even just a few hours of your time - has a positive impact on the lives of underprivileged individuals all around the world by placing millions of educational resources right at their fingertips
