Two Rabbits uses simple yet innovative technology to enable Baka youth to simultaneously pursue both traditional and modern educations. By accommodating their semi-nomadic culture with a mobile education support, Baka children can continue to carry out their activities in the forest while following along with their school lessons.
The Two Rabbits project employs SABER mp3 devices as mobile education tools that allow Baka youth and communities to partake in school lessons deep in the forest.
SABER mp3 devices are simple and durable machines that run entirely on renewable energy.
They can carry up to 2 GB of recorded audio material, and are powered completely by a hand crank.
Two Rabbits will utilize this exciting technology to break down the barriers between classroom and forest for the Baka. SABERs will serve as portable “mobile schools” that the Baka can carry with them throughout the forest.
With lessons, songs, and educational stories recorded onto the SABERs, and an endless supply of renewable energy to power them, the Baka will have limitless access to a schooling supplement in their own mother tongue that they can take with them everywhere they go.
