<<Since the early 90's, FUNREDES' position is that "ICT for Development" is NOT about plugging and playing, chatting and surfing, getting information abroad, converging to one language, one culture and one market. It's about empowering persons and communities, collaborating and social networking, producing local content, facilitating diversity of languages, cultures and opinions.>>

Dicember 2022: Tribute  given to Daniel Pimienta from  Dominican ICT Chamber for his contributions to ICT in Dominican Republic and  acknowledgment  given  by Daniel Pimienta to the teams and partners involved in activities in the Dominican Republic.

May 2017: FUNREDES ANNOUNCED THE END OF ITS ACTIVITIES.

However, the project, existing since 1998, about measuring languages and cultures in the Internet is maintained and transformed into another NGO : go check  the Observatory of Linguistic and Cultural Diversity on the Internet (OBDILCI).

Other activities are maintained by the Ex President of FUNREDES: Information Literacy - Critical reflexion on the Internet evolution

We thanks TRICOM which has hosted our site in solidarity between 1998 and 2007.
After, the site has been re-hosted in a commercial servers (1&1) thanks to the support of NAP of the Caribbean and the efforts of Álvaro Blanco.
Finally the site is being migrated in FastComet web hosting services in June 2019, again thanks to the efforts of Álvaro Blanco.
The funredes.org domain is now maintained at no cost as long as the web hosting contract is renewed; the associated domains will not be renewed and the corresponding information is made accessible via a link such as funredes.org/PROJECT or in some cases thru the WayBack Machine of Archive.org (see below).
We thank Mike Field who helped us for the revival of many parts of the Funredes website which were broken. Note that he is also the redesigner the new website of OBDILCI.
Some restablished websites have still problems with the management if accents in French or Spanish; we are working on that.


We invite you to go straight into FUNREDES main projects and activities after 2000:
