On-line Volunteering website

Dear users,

This month, UNV is opening the round for nominations for the Online Volunteering Award 2013. The award is an opportunity for online volunteers and organizations to bring their online volunteering experiences and good practices to the attention of a global audience.

In this issue, you can read about the contributions of online volunteers to assist the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) in the expansion of the Human Trafficking Case Law Database. Through this database, which currently counts around 900 cases from 76 countries, UNODC collects and disseminates information on human trafficking prosecutions and convictions. The database can be used by police investigators, prosecutors and judges, government policy-makers, the public and media, researchers and all citizens responding to trafficking in persons, a crime that ruthlessly exploits millions of women, children and men for numerous purposes including forced labour and sex. Read on to find out what online volunteers have been doing to help build tools to confront this crime. 




Best wishes,
The Online Volunteering service team

We teachers have to play a very important role in our countries and beyond them because we are given the most precious part of the countries and the world that is its or their kids to educate and train. So we should be provided by means that allow us to do and accomplish such a noble mission.

If in the 21st century there are many schools that haven't a good or working internet connection it is very difficult to well educate global youth.

EBB has a noble mission and to achieve its goal affording teachers and schools with informatic tools may make easy its task.

The documentary A small act is about a Harvard Kenya sponsored by a Holocaust survivor. Provides a fabulous look at education in Kenya. A must see for anyone wishing to Join EBB in Kenya.

While I could not find it on Amazon, there are excerpts on You Tube.

Subject: VOY Media Magic List - RESOURCES / PUBLICATIONS: Children's Views Not in the News: Portrayal of Children in South African Print Media 2009

This 34-page report is from Media Monitoring Africa (MMA), which, as part of its Empowering Children and the Media (ECM) strategy, researched selected print media's coverage of children and children's rights in South African news. As part of this study, media coverage of children for the period of May 17 to August 30 2009 was divided into 5 broad questions:

1. Have children's rights been respected, and is the coverage ethical?
2. Are children's voices heard?
3. Are children's issues covered in depth?
4. Are a diversity of children represented - in terms of age, sex, race, and region?
5. How has the media covered children, overall?

As I am sure many of you are aware Greg Mortenson is the founder of Central Asia Institute (CAI). His work is almost entirely in the remote regions of Afghanistan where he and local colleagues are responsible for building numerous schools with a focus on girls' schools, not an easy accomplishment considering his team must often confront the Taliban.

His first book, Three Cups of Tea was a great read. Appropriately titled his second book Stones to Schools continues the saga of CAI's work. His books are very descriptive and easy reads.

His books reach beyond Afghanistan to inspire and delight those interested in international education.
