to the California Rural Technology Project - RAIN's Distance
Learning and Telemedicine Network.
The RAIN Network is a non-profit educational service providing
distance learning, telemedicine, and connectivity services to
rural communities. In Southern California RAIN has received
support from the USDA Rural Utilities Service to serve 15 rural
communities in Southern California.
Each of these communities faces challenges unique to rural areas
- lack of connectivity, lack of adequate health or education
resources, limited computer availability in the schools and
RAIN seeks to provide solutions to these challenges at a local
level, implementing technology based projects that bring together
youth and adult community members, as well as local businesses
These projects are focused on the improvement and introduction
of health, education, and technology resources and programs
that are directly beneficial to the community. Click on any
