RACHEL-PI uses Raspberry Pi to bring internet to remote areas #piday # raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

NewImage

Using a Raspberry Pi, World Possible is now able to successfully run its RACHEL, or Remote Area Community Hotspots for Education and Learning, server in areas without internet access under the moniker RACHEL-Pi.
From RaspberryPi.org:

Despite the early successes of those groups, we still didn’t have the final piece of the puzzle that has exploded RACHEL deployment today (development of open-source educational resources + uniform standards of web browsers + proliferation of low cost computing hardware and storage). In comes the Raspberry Pi, giving us the ability to create a plug-and-play webserver and hotspot at a price point that we can distribute to masses of people without any required computer literacy background.

  1. Best decision we’ve made with RACHEL-PI was switching to your 5V 2A regulated power supplies, thanks Adafruit! – Jeremy (World Possible Executive Director and Loyal Adafruit customer)
