On-line Volunteers Help Uganda's Disabled
For volunteers like 85-year-old Granny Nabbowa of People with Disabilities-Uganda, taking care of disabled children can be extremely difficult, particularly when resources are lacking. Now, however, organizations that cater to the needs of the disabled can get help globally. Assisted by the UN Volunteers, NetAid and the Internet, PWD has developed a website to tap the skills, advice and funds of on-line experts around the world. This achievement highlights the Internet’s ability to forge partnerships in problem solving.
