LINDA means “PROTECT” in Swahili.
LINDA PROJECT is a community-based solution providing a sustainable safety net for the Goma Volcano Observatory (VGO, OVG in French) to accomplish its core mission: monitoring the Nyiragongo, Nyamuragira, and Lake Kivu.
The LINDA PROJECT is powered by the diaspora, the academic, tech, and business communities coming together to take ownership of the problem and be the solution.
The LINDA PROJECT is based on the idea that solutions rooted in the targetted community are the most resilient. You always win when the key stakeholder takes ownership, investing time, energy, and resources to better the infrastructure that protects its families, friends, and businesses.
