ACCESS: Access Points seeks to utilize the increasing availability of Information Age technologies with Internet based market opportunities designed specifically to meet the needs of people who are economically dis-enfranchised and whom are regularly excluded from mainstream consideration.
Providing Internet Access is achieved by giving alternative powered ICTs, cellular phones, and donated computers to Peace Partners with a presence already in places of greatest need, or simply by integrating our platform partners with projects already providing Access, such as: One Laptop per Child, Clinton Global Initiative, and efforts of the Gates Foundation among others.
At the most basic level of access, a cellular platform is being designed by Peace partners and corporations, to provide everyone with a PAD.
PAD: Personal Access Device:
The PAD is a FREE (given away) cellular phone with graphical display and Internet access tied directly to a Free Digital Universe (FDU) account. FDU earnings and system guarantee the payment of monthly bills to the Provider by directing ad revenue earnings from each FDU User to the cell Providers account, the FDUMA pays the Provider in the public currency of their choice.
To address economic growth of those living in poverty, particularly in emerging markets where the majority of people subsist on less than $2.00 a day, and for them to grow without further depleting the natural resources of their local eco-systems, will require something entirely new - access to the Information Age.
Through the use of a simple cellular phone device, which can be given away due to the guaranteed monthly revenue streams from the phone Users integrated FDU account, everyone on the planet can have access to the digital globalized marketplace via their Personal Access Device - PAD. With access to the global marketplace new vistas of educational and commercial potential become available, manifesting that potential is the work of Market Support, and Partners.
MARKET SUPPORT: Support, training, and services for accessing digital wealth in local goods and services will be need to supplement technology. Through a Co-op for example, only a few need to know how to use computers; craftsmen can drop off their goods to the Co-op for auctioning, musicians be video-taped as part of a digital creation. Whole communities can prosper even if only a few know how to use the technology.
One of our more innovative support projects called SCALE, charters a co-operative at the local level, a cooperative is an autonomous association of persons united voluntarily to meet their common economic, social, and cultural needs and aspirations. Working closely with the Prosperity Program, all Access Points are provided a step-by-step plan for implementing a local private community Co-operative, inclusive:
1. A private back-office application for accounting and aggregating of individual community Member funds;
2. A support staff made up of various Peace Partners which help Co-ops with increasing their wealth by doing such things as distributing their digital content, helping them in creating digital content themselves, how to take digital photos of hand-crafted goods and sell them via the Free Digital Market, and other on-line support as appropriate;
3. Distribution networks for the relay, delivery, and tracking of physical goods and services moving into and out of the Access Points.
4. Access to conversion of the private Points of the digital platform into the Co-op Trustees public currency of choice.
5. Help in establishing private regional trading platforms between Access Point Co-ops, with emphasis on attaining regional self-sustainability.
SCALE is a plan supported by volunteers of Ministries, the FreeDigitalMarket, and others. A SCALE Co-operative provides people in the communities access to a local account that can be managed while still allowing each individual to retain individual control over the Members account.
PARTNERS: No one, two, or even ten organizations can challenge our planetary problems alone, a coordinated effort is required by all groups working everywhere, we all need a rallying point; therefore Peace Portal strives to connect complimentary projects with active organizations globally, volunteers, and supporting technologies through its Peace Partners communities.
Working closely with the Free Digital University, a partner working to provide equal and free access to educational curriculum at all levels and in all languages, the educational plan aims to put economically poor people at the centre of learning, analyzing and responding to their own situation. PAP therefore places a strong emphasis on developing and strengthening sustainable solutions to stakeholders on the ground.
Economic Prosperity Partners:

Peace Partners providing the elements of the commercial platform include;
