Hi Pawel,
I noticed that Development Cooperation Center works with fair trade initiatives... Did you know that a specific financial envelope of EUR 1.000.000 is available for actions promoting fair trade?
Could you send us some doc in English about Community Computer Education Centres?
Thanks!
Comment by Pawel Makowiecki on January 29, 2009 at 18:25
Community Computer Education Centers have a great partner Development Cooperation Center with strong presence in African countries like Tanzania, Ghana, etc.

Together with them we send Konrad to work in Nyamata Teleservice Center in Rwanda.

I think that we are interested in helping with this project, if not as a partner then atleast facilitate engagement of our volunteers through Developemnt Cooperation Center or other organizations.
