      New Program: WebDesign
      ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

      Websites can be a beneficial tool for making contacts, forging
      partnerships, fundraising, and marketing services and crafts. The
      WebDesign program is a partnership of WOUGNET and InterConnection to
      donate websites to WOUGNET members that meet InterConnection's
      criteria for website donation. The websites will be developed by
      InterConnection volunteers and the only responsibility for WOUGNET
      members will be to provide appropriate text and photos for the
      websites.

      InterConnection's mission is to provide the Internet and computer
      technology and training to underserved communities in developing
      countries. A sample of websites that have been donated by
      InterConnection is available at: http://www.interconnection.org/ngo
