It's also a model of information aggregation that could be used to build a network of organizations working toward well-being of youth in the same country or continent.
I've had a friend in Africa contact me via email and telephone for many years asking for my help. I've constantly encouraged him to set up a blog or some other sort of web site that shows where he is, what he does and how others around Africa and the world can help him. He has told me he has to travel 200 miles to get to an internet point which makes my suggestion difficult. Today I saw this blog article about a way to create local internet and cell phone access. http://arstechnica.com/business/2012/08/how-one-man-is-bringing-voi... . Are any of you aware of this? The idea seems to originate in South Africa.
I hope that all of you are connecting to each other in helpful ways.
Is this a group any of you in Africa are connected to? The organization is PLAN. Here's their education page.
