GCED–Global Community Enterprise Development

This non-profit Christian organization is currently putting its biggest focus on helping children in rural areas of developing countries learn to use computer skills. It was started by John Kim, a retired engineer. He began in Uganda and hopes to expand his activities througout the developing world. The main problems are: 1) no electricity; 2) no inexpensive computers; and 3) not enough adequately-trained teachers. After returning home to the U.S.A., he started research to resolve these three problems and designed a system to meet them with solar power (patent pending). This makes it possible to have solar-powered computer training clasrooms and can be a self-sustaining project. GCED is willing to come and train teachers onsite.
Mr. Kim is also interested in solar-powered pumps for getting water, caged fish farming, locally-manufactured baby food, and other forms of development. Contact him if you have any technical concerns or other questions.
