Organising a one-time outreach program should be the beginning and not the end of the process. It may take considerable time for the target group(s) to adopt and apply their newly acquired skills of contributing to free and open knowledge. Learning to make effective use of the Internet while retaining traditional practices and values will definitely take time.

Outreach efforts need the evolution of an "information movement". One of the prime ways to enable it is to start "community e-information centres".

Learning and communication will happen via online networking among diverse peoples living in different parts of the world. That may lead to equitable participation in this great venture [of free and open knowledge] and, in turn, greater human development.
