Because K4All will be a collaborative project that depends on the support and work of thousands of institutions and individuals, it will be necessary to have a community of supporters and contributors in place by the end of the Planning and Development Phase. Following the 6-month Planning component, and concurrent with System Development, the 6-month Community Development, Marketing, and Fundraising component will focus on marketing, fundraising and developing the K4All community of contributors with the goal of obtaining all necessary resources to proceed to the next stage of the K4All project, as well as additional resources needed for System Development.
