Welcome to WiderNet

WiderNet is dedicated to improving digital education and communications for all communities and individuals around the world.

A U.S. 501c3 nonprofit organization, we provide resources, coaching, training, computers and educational materials to schools, clinics, libraries and homes in underserved areas of the world.

We develop and distribute the eGranary Digital Library, a plug-and-play server that provides instant access to millions of digital educational documents without the need of a connection to the Internet.

Over 2,200 institutions – schools, clinics, and universities – have adopted the eGranary across Africa, India, Bangladesh, Haiti, Papua New Guinea, and many other locations. Its sister library, the Corrections Offline Education Platform (COEP) is also installed in over 30 correctional institutions in the U.S.

At the most basic level, by offering technical assistance to people with poor digital communication means, we are building a digital bridge. Today, we must focus on the bricks and mortar and the heavy lifting to build the bridge.


“Installation of the eGranary at the EP Basic School in Ashaiman, Ghana has expanded the boundaries of the traditional libraries and encouraged students to go beyond static texts and explore the rich digital environment provided by eGranary.”

“The eGranary has come as one of the best solutions to address most of the challenges related to connection speed and the high costs associated to it.”

“The eGranary challenges the staff to want to go back to school to acquire degree certificates on a number of relevant disciplines.”
