Bet on the future

Jalapa is a municipality in the Nueva Segovia Department of Nicaragua, which is located on the border of Honduras.

Jalapa is a very poor region and was one of the most affected by the civil war in the 80’s.

Today, the local government of Jalapa is making a strong bet on the future, migrating their workstations and servers to Free and Open Source Software, specifically Ubuntu Linux.

It’s an unique opportunity to narrow the digital divide and bring progress to the rural communities. A big ‘Thank You’ to the members of our LoCo Team that has been working hard for several months to make this initiative come true.
