About World Possible
World Possible is a nonprofit organization dedicated to spreading access to educational resources in communities lacking Internet. At World Possible, we believe access to knowledge is a fundamental human right. Through World Possible's RACHEL server, we are providing communities offline copies of the finest open source education materials available. This enables communities with access to computers, but no access to internet, an avenue by which they can have a library of educational and reference materials in a pseudo-internet experience.
Inspired by the motivation and dedication of the people of Ethiopia who responded with "Possible! Possible!" to questions of education and technology, World Possible was created. The vision
is to make a literate and poverty free "world possible" through the
means of Education, Technology and Community Service.
