ChasquiNet Foundation
About Us
ChasquiNet is a nonprofit foundation based in Quito Ecuador, that since 1998, implements and coordinates actions that strengthen human and social development in Ecuador and beyond. We are a team that implements programs and advocacy projects through the strategic use of ICT in areas such as education, community access and management centers (telecentres), economical development and sustainability, and knowledge management networks to name just some.

The name of ChasquiNet is inspired by the Chasquis, the Inca messenger who ran from settlement to settlement in order to transport information and goods from one place to another. The Foundation connects the modern Chasquis through various topic based interactive networks of mutual support and knowledge sharing.
