Kaanbal is a nonprofit organization that develops projects and educational platforms through the use of technologies in indigenous communities and remote locations, mostly at the Mayan area, where internet access is very limited or nonexistent. We work together with worldwide organizations to bring education and technology to the places that need it in order to promote the use of new teaching methods, increase aspirations and improve the quality of life in the people of the towns.
The first access point developed by Kaanbal is located at the community of Agua Azul in the municipality of Lázaro Cardenas, Quintana Roo. Even as a community that has no phone signal, a RACHEL-Pi server was placed in here, loaded with all content from sites such as Wikipedia, Khan Academy, books, medical encyclopedias, food guides, health guides and much more.
This content is now part of the academic resources of the Middle School and High School at Agua Azul, where both teachers and more than 110 students attending daily are benefiting directly, including local people and from other communities like Juárez, Héroes de Nacozari, San Martiniano, San Lorenzo and Delirios.
