The organization which initially started as a collaboration between friends from Gulu and the United States of America, who thought of using ICT to help end the isolation of communities in the IDP camps, by setting up ICT centres in the camps and connecting one ICT Centre with another. BOSCO also named in honor of the Roman Catholic Saint John Bosco) collaborated with Inveneo to place their low-power PCs powered by solar panels in the Catechist Training Center and the Caritas Office in Gulu, as well as at schools, hospitals, colleges and Churches in the Pabbo, Alero, Lacor, Coope, Jen'Geri, Unyama, and Pagak IDP camps. The organization aims to use ICT to help end the isolation of communities in rural northern Uganda as well as improve education, economics, human rights documentation, health care and rural development. The rich success of our past projects has led BOSCO to establish 55 community ICT & Development Centers in rural areas in Acholi, Lango and West Nile regions. These centres are aimed at bridging the digital divide between rural and urban communities by expanding access to ICT skills and services for the rural poor communities in Northern Uganda.
