Global South

Welcome to the Global South page. The goal of this initiative is to get more people from the Global South involved in the Tor community (as users, relay operators, developers, trainers, etc). We also want to recognize and work with the people who are already doing great work related to Tor and the Tor ecosystem in their communities.

Projects

  • Tor relay campaign in Latin America

A "run a relay" campaign focused in Latin America to teach about Tor, its use cases, and how to help the network by running relays (hopefully exit relays). The target audience for this campaign is mainly universities, as they probably have the bandwidth and technical skills for hosting a relay. For the moment, this campaign will be done by Derechos Digitales, but we are looking for more allies in the region.

  • Global South Tor trainer support

We are working with trainers in several areas of the Global South, including South Asia, East Africa, and MENA, providing travel funding and guidance in support of their local Tor trainings. Through this initiative we're hoping to grow the network of Tor users and trainers and get much-needed usability feedback so that we can build our tools specific to the needs of people in the south.
