Rapid advances in technology infrastructure and increasing access to constant connectivity are paving the way for more innovative methods to support knowledge sharing in Global South countries. We present a model for knowledge sharing that is open, interactive, draws on diverse expertise and experience, and builds a searchable information repository that can be used by multiple communities and organizations. In addition, we envision that this model can be an effective and low-cost stepping stone to improved information literacy across the developing world.
