On the home page of the Tutor/Mentor Connection site is a guest map, that enables people to post who they are and show where they are. If you and the others working in Africa who are joining the Tutor/Mentor Ning site will post your information on the map, or create a similar tool to show who /where you are, this can become a more collective effort to help each of you draw resources from the rest of the world to help you help kids in Africa.
If you can attract the attention of international philanthropists like the Gates Foundation, or Soros Foundation, maybe they will see how we're supporting you, and help us as well.
Thanks for joining the group. I hope you'll join the Africa Group on this Ning site and help members connect with each other and use the ideas on this forum to help tutor/mentor programs reach more youth in Africa. As you do this you will help build more resources to help us in the US and other countries, too.
