    KnowNet Weaver is a Tool Kit developed for Communities, Non-Governmental Organisations and Individuals to host local knowledge on the Information Superhighway. KnowNet Weaver is a collection of free-of-cost, freeware or shareware softwares/tools available on the internet which enables you to create your own interactive website, give it a domain name and host it on the World Wide Web (WWW) without incurring any monetary cost. The kit is being currently translated into languages other than English and remote volunteer help is provided to communities, organisations and individuals to clarify their doubts/difficulties and help them make use of the resources in the tool kit.
