Hula Networks has partnered with eSyllabus for Africa, a US based 501c3 that is dedicated to assisting schools in African nations with digital libraries for eLearning programs. Hula aims to work with its industry partners and worldwide customer base to generate donations of computer desktops, laptops, iPads, and computer peripherals to aid eSyllabus for Africa.
In 2013, eSyllabus for Africa established a partnership with Ghana Regional Libraries to provide various locations with IT equipment. eSyllabus for Africa was granted permission to run educational seminars and sessions at their various library locations in the 10 regions of Ghana. "This a great way to put legacy IT e-waste items to good use while providing a positive channel for Hula partners and customers to give back," stated Hula CFO, Scott Hobin. At present, over 250 tablets have been distributed to Ghana regional libraries at 8 locations (Sogakope, Tamale, Accra, Koforidua, Ho, Kumasi, Takoradi, Cape Coast) and the 3 staff of eSyllabus for Africa coordinate programs at the library in Takoradi, Tamale and Accra.
eSyllabus for Africa has also constructed computer labs at several schools, including a rural program with a solar system in parts of Ghana without electricity. eSyllabus for Africa has partnerships with many NGOs in Africa who utilize its free digital library materials, which include material such as offline Khan Academy and offline Wikipedia.
eSyllabus for Africa is a registered NGO in Ghana with full certification from the local government. eSyllabus for Africa also has a registered 501c3 in the United States, and all donations to eSyllabus for Africa are tax deductible. All staff are in Ghana, and eSyllabus for Africa maintains no employees in USA or rents any space in the USA or Africa. No American staff is paid and all funds are spent on programs. In this way since 2013 with a budget of only 100-150K a year, eSyllabus for Africa has been able to provide over 100 scholarships, provide over 500 schools with digital library materials and to create strategic partnerships with many other NGOs and government agencies.
