Andrius Kulikauskas <ms@...> wrote:I just spoke with Maria Agnese Giraudo is Santa Miranella, Italy. She
has been supporting Samwel Kongere's work especially to coordinate our
team in Tanzania including Helen Mahoo, William Wambura, Leonard
Boniface and others. She is very happy and excited with all that
they've accomplished this year.
Agnese will send 30 USD per month to our lab so that we can send that to
Samwel for his online access and he can work further with our Tanzanian
team. (Agnese, please open an account at http://www.paypal. com and when
you are ready please send me 90 USD to ms@... for three months) She
will also support him to travel in Tanzania in April 2007. And we're
planning for him to come to Italy and Lithuania in November 2007 or
thereabouts. We want him to become an expert in Wi-Fi technology so
that Internet access is less of a challenge and more of an opportunity.
There are experts in Rome, Italy in "trashware" (making good use of old
hardware) and I hope to connect them with Samwel so that he could learn
from them. Also we have experts here in Lithuania.
My plan this coming year for our African budget is to invest some of our
lab's money into some small business projects that Samwel can lead that
would make good use of the money, keep it circulating and perhaps also
generate a profit to pay for his work. Also we want to have several 100
USD stipends available for small projects (such as for MyFoodStory) for
various people in Africa (and perhaps India) who have been active at our
lab, especially Janet Feldman's Holistic Helping working group
http://groups. yahoo.com/ group/holistiche lping/ such as Wendi of ACTWID
KONGADZEM in Cameroon, Ken Owino in Nairobi and Tom Ochuka in Kenya, and
in Pamela McLean's Learning From Each Other working group
http://groups. yahoo.com/ group/learningfr omeachother/ such as Fred Kayiwa
in Uganda and there are others, thank you for writing! We're very happy
with Samwel's successes and I'd like to expand this small project
approach with others.
We have $3,000 USD of "bonus" money available if we meet our targets for
MyFoodStory. I will set aside $1,800 = $1 each for 1,800 Storyteller
Directory entries at http://www.myfoodst ory.info for editors who collect
them for us. And I will set aside $1,200 = $20 each for 60 web pages
that we create to showcase foodstories at various sites (or $10 each for
weblog posts or wiki pages). So this is work that our Tanzanian team
can learn to do with help from Samwel Kongere and George Christian
Jeyaraj. And so this is a way for them to earn money for their work.
Also, this is a way for our online participants form bandwidth-rich
countries to earn money that they can typically apply to pay workers
around the world for their projects, much as we did for the chocolate
project. I will write more details.
Samwel's team is earning 500 USD for their work on MyFoodStory. They
are setting this aside for Wi-Fi technology. We're exploring what is
the best way to send this money. But we will start with me sending two
one-year-old Wi-Fi access points to Samwel that I won't need because I
will be traveling for four months. So Samwel will be able to create a
local network and see how far he can get it to work. Meanwhile we'll
consider how to best use our money for more technology. And meanwhile
we can invest that money in Kenya for a couple of projects that I think
would profitable and helpful for our lab. One is to print one or two
hundred copies of an Almanac for 2007 for our lab describing how people
can participate: our leaders, venues, principles, projects,
investigations, events that we envisage for the coming year. I will be
writing that at http://www.ourcultu re.info based on what we've written
in our letters including this coming week. Then participants can
purchase, for example, 10 copies for 50 USD and share them with people
they'd like to invite and involve locally and globally. That way Samwel
can earn some money for his work, too. Another business project is to
create T-shirts that would support our work together, perhaps something
with our keyconcepts and/or investigatory questions. If anybody is
interested - if there is demand - please let us know! and help us
understand what would be most exciting!
This week I want to flesh out our interface at
http://www.myfoodst ory.info just a bit more. Then I will teach Agnese
and others who might be interested how to add stories and also how to
contribute "encyclopedic" articles.
Please write about your plans for the coming year and we'll make room in
our Almanac for you!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
