The value of ICT will not be fully used by simply connecting an isolated community in Africa to the Internet. The expansion is only meaningful when it is part of a larger project to show the value of ICT and by offering training to the local people what the Internet can bring for them. The local people should keep the internet in the air and be the First line of support for problems that the userrs face. Macha Works trains at least 2 local heroes from the village in Macha in basic computer skills and network management before the IT organization LinkNet connects a new village to the Internet. The large Group of ICT students puts high demand on the training facilities needed at the Ubuntu campus. On this campus 5 new LinkNet IT Academy classes (LITA), housing for teachers and students are built and related infrastructure is developed.
