Rural Alaska Village Water Program in talks with IMC

The director of the Rural Alaska Village Water Program is presently in discussion with International Medical Corps(IMC) staff, and the focus of these talks will be to create e-learning courses that can be made accessible to remote Alaskan villages. Currently, eight courses are offered through the State of Alaska, but attendance at these centrally-located courses is not always possible.

Travel to and from the communities is difficult, so having this material available online would increase its effectiveness, and enable more villagers to qualify for assistance and apply for state and federal funds.The situation in remote Alaskan villages is often similar to the difficulties faced by remote African communities, and the developing e-learning module will be tailored so that it can be used in schools and settlements in poor countries throughout the world.
