hi neighbors,
I find it desirable to support my community in most pressing problem that's lack of ideas and skills to set off. I desire to see that people's lives and livelihood are improved particularly in best conditions. I also need to promote rural development of communities still backward like in Africa where poverty is eminent and people live in appalling conditions.

More about myself:
I am Muslim female aged 25 in a logistic and supply field. I serve among the local communities in Uganda,mainly in the central part. Poverty is the language in every corner of the country.I am interested in volunteering and networking for the betterment of my society Africa and the world at large. My desire too is to promote ideas that can assist the needy and orphans from their cries.

Hi Everyone,

I am Jasper from the Netherlands. I am studying Regional Development and Innovation. With this study I will become a "communication expert" or facilitator for development projects. During this study my interest for Internet and social networking grew. During my internship e.g. I developed a internet training for farmers in developing countries. Unfortunately the organization I wrote this for doesn't exist anymore.
At the moment I am following a specialization minor called "Digital World" at Hogeschool Inholland Rotterdam. This specialization is about the impact of Internet on life and work.

I am ready to help with gardening/farming. Using organic, no-till does not require any funds; just willingness to garden/farm differently. Only funds needed is one time for seed for new crops. Use bucket drip irrigation for growing during the dry season or drought.

Hi Jasper - thank you so much for taking the time to introduce yourself. It sounds like your training program is teaching you very relevant skills which I am certain we can put to good use here at Nabuur! I would be very interested in learning more about the training you developed. I am sure others here would as well. We have many projects around Nabuur with tasks focused on improving agriculture.

Please don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions about the Kiserian village, Nabuur in general or project facilitation. We can always use good facilitators and several villages here are seeking assistance in that regard.

All the best-

Jennifer

We wish you a warm welcome to the Kiserian village! I am also happy to see that you have a village of your own. I know Mary has been assisting you with getting it set up - the site takes time to learn how to use, but the more you practice the easier it becomes. I am sure that you will be able to offer valuable suggestions and advice here for Daniel too. It's a great way to learn from each other. We are happy you are here with us. Thank you for taking the time to introduce yourself.

All the best-

Jennifer

We've had a lot of new faces join our group this month! Our volunteer team is growing! That's great to see. I also wanted to take a moment to welcome two more volunteers - Jeremy Ecle, Josephat Bwire and Faith Wambura Ngari. Links to their profiles are below:

Jeremy, Josephat and Faith, it would be great if you could tell the rest of the group a bit more about yourselves. I'm happy you've chosen to join the Kiserian village and look forward to working with you all.

All the best-

Hi Jennifer, thanks for your reply!
The training I wrote was for a specific online trade platform. Unfortunately the platform doesn't exist anymore and the training cannot be applied without this platform.
I do not have much knowledge about agriculture. I got trained as a process facilitator/adult trainer and I am specialising myself in the possibilities of the Digital World. I do have literature and some knowledge and skills that might be helpful here.
I've been the manager of a group of students past 7 weeks. The students explored various digital methods (augmented reality, online marketing campaign/research, multimedia and more) to stimulate various target groups in Rotterdam to contribute to the future development of their neighborhood. To facilitate this we built an online work platform. My ambition is to support on (or more) of the projects on nabuur.com to build an interactive online collaboration platform. And of course I am eager to facilitate this.
I am reading through all active projects now. If anyone has a suggestion for a project that could use such a platform, I would like to hear this.

Greets

Jasper
