The Hometown.ng™ Database Project is a web application designed to integrate thousands of villages, towns and cities into the globalization trend by capturing their histories, lacks, cultures, expectations, festivals, photographs, people, contacts, sacred ties, aesthetics, economy, demographics, etc., into one central database that will be accessible to the general public and government as a form of traditional encyclopedia.
Our biggest objective is to connect people to their hometowns
The Hometown Database Project will not only reflect the everyday activities of villages to the world but will also connect people to their villages and villages to the government. It will be a one point contact for people to see through villages and for villages to be seen through the World Wide Web.
It is our belief, dream and philosophy that boundaries should no longer exist! The Hometown.ng Database Project is our first hypothesis towards affirming this philosophy.
Integrating and bridging the gap between rural life and cultures of the rural area with other parts of the world, together with their government is certainly a major way of implementing this philosophy while opening a new window between rural demographics and the world of research. We would no longer continue to depend on foreign based institutions to learn about our own local own places.
We believe that we can develop a local database that will not only reliably but accurately describe the local places and people from a traditional perspective. This is the foundation upon which Hometown.ng is built.
