Development projects and involvement
Mood:  bright
Topic: Nice websites
I have always wanted to get involved in volunteering at least since I travelled back home in 2001.
There is some much to be done to develop our countries and so little resources.
And the ongoing unrest, all over Africa, is keeping the focus away from an effective action towards social and economic development.
Everyone's eyes are rather fixed on the political warfare waged from long ago by the same kinds of persons.
This is to say that the population ought to take some development issues personally and start acting and not wait for the aid to drop down from somewhere.
We can start something and build out of nothing, may it be little, if each one does a part, it's going to be big as all efforts unite for the good of the community.
Again, there is so much to be done in so many fields: health and welfare, education, small business, women's condition, children's condition ... I found a couple of website that aggregate volunteers and development projects. At least that's the first impression I had while visiting them yesterday, I am still discovering what they are all about:
  • cyber.icvolunteers.org
  • www.icvolunteers.org
  • TIG
  • YCDO
  • Go and see for yourself ...

    Hi

    I wanted to share with you this new website:

    http://www.tree-nation.com

    It's all about ecology and fighting desertification.
    The concept is that members can buy or offer a tree ! It is a very special gift as they get a Tree-Blog and at the same time we plant for them a Tree in the Sahara to help local communities.

    Don't hesitate to talk about it or link to the site.
    Hope you like it.

    Cheers

    max
