The 'view' of volunteer opportunities is ordered by date authored so you post was authored in January thus ends up on page four at the moment:-
Should the view be changed to 'last updated' rather than 'date authored'?
Thanks Kester for your answer. I think it can maybe help if the tasks that you mark as needs urgent help are showing up on top of the list. For example if a task is online for a while but needs new volunteers, you could change the status to needs urgent help and it would show up again on top of the list.
The system can't differentiate what you do to the task, just that it has been changed. For now I've set it so it's sorted by the last time the task was changed.
I'm not sure it's better... any thoughts?
i do not know what is the problem with some because our s on fundraising is there and show up well

I'm wondering if someone can post a summary or overview of the latest NABUUR camp that happened a couple of weeks ago? I was able to drop in only for a few minutes unfortunately, and it seemed like things were on a positive flow. Would appreciate reading what came of the day.

Welcome to Nabuur!
As you will have seen on the home page, Nabuur links local communities in developing countries (knows as Villages) with online volunteers from around the world (known as Neighbours).
Every Village has a set of pages where they describe their current situation, and the help they would like from neighbours.
Nabuur is not accepting any new communities at the moment, but if you are interested in registering yours in the future, you can leave your email address at http://www.nabuur.com/en/assistance-your-community and will be notified when registration is open again.
Although you cannot get direct assistance for your community, you can still join in as an online volunteer by sharing your experience and ideas with the existing villages and groups - see the Villages, Volunteer Opportunites and Groups sections.
There are a few Congolese villages on here, but the majority are not active any more - many groups around the world register but never become regular users of the site. The only ones I am aware of where there are occasional postings are Walungu http://www.nabuur.com/en/village/walungu and Nyalebe http://www.nabuur.com/en/village/nyalebe
Hope that helps - the site can be very confusing at first, but it does get easier!
I would like to suggest Nabuur create an app for iPhone and android devices.
that's true Liz ,sometimes when you get to the vwebsite on phones it dont dowloads some task taps or signing in is problem

We Are Seeking For Volunteers To Support Us In Our Needs. We Are Badly Off
The lack of funding for nabuur is one of the saddest thing I have ever seen. This was the best website for grassroots I had ever found. It continued to be so. Almost 100% of the grassroots groups become self-progating and forget their grassroots purpose. There is only one volunteer from the original founding group. Palle is very limited as to what he can do. I have helped so many farmers by sending DVDs, etc.
Is there something we can do to restore funding?
