Countries with the Lowest Household Average Salary http://www.therichest.com/business/economy/countries-with-the-lowest-household-average-salary/ To Poverty Action at WUaS http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Poverty_Action & in African Languages in Africa World University and Schools - http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Africa
 
I have heard for many years that some people live on up to USD 2 per day. According to the linked article, people from some countries earn USD 200 per month. It's a challenge if it is the only income for 4 people.
More than 11 million people from the Democratic Republic of Congo have access to electrical energy. They consume on average 10 kWh per month. They don't really use computers. Their infrastructure does not promise much more energy or reliability for the years to come.
Over 2 million people from the Democratic Republic of Congo have access to the Internet. To cover the entire nation, each such couple could continue the conversations had over the Internet by communicating offline with other 60 people, e.g. by inviting acquaintances to browse some Internet pages.
If the price of our powerful applications (mun.idls.ro) can be brought down to USD 2 per month for such households, we will improve Internet literacy and usage a lot. Such a person earns this money in 2 hours, others in 5 minutes.
I offer to work now for USD 1 per hour, the same as these people.
According to the World Bank, the citizens of Luxembourg, Qatar, Norway, Singapore and Switzerland enjoy some of the highest household average salaries in the world.

Music and its traditions can facilitate understanding between nations. Here is the beginning online Music School at World University - http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/World_University_Music_School - planned for ALL instruments in ALL 8K languages, each a wiki subject to begin.  And as an example of a musical instrument page where we can all teach or learn and via video and Hangouts too, here's the Scottish Smallpipes page too - http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Scottish_smallpipes_and_borderpipes ... all at this music-focused G+ page - https://plus.google.com/u/0/+ScottMacLeodMusic/posts !

World University and School, like Wikipedia with best STEM-centric OCW
Introduction
Developing World Univ & Sch, Teaching classes about the IT Revolution in virtual worlds, Writing an actual / virtual ethnography about Harbin Hot Springs with a virtual world aspect, Bagpiping, Writing Poetry, blogging, Music (WUaS Music School/Jamming/online, free Music Playing Spaces), counterculture, Grateful Dead, wiki, Yoga

I'm developing a global, virtual, free, open, degree-granting, multilingual University for the developing world and everyone - http://worlduniversity.wikia.com. It's like Wikipedia  best STEM-centric OCW (e.g. CC MIT OCW in many languages, and CC Yale OYC), and potentially in all 9,000+ languages and 242 + countries. 

I'm an anthropologist, who also finds fascinating ideas, sociology, art, science, philosophy, history, music, love and life ~ as well as the anthropology of information technology & counterculture :)
