Let women get in touch with the world

As you know I have been working with UbuntuAtWork for an year now. We help women micro entrepreneurs enhance their capabilities, pursue their entrepreneurial aspirations, and escape poverty. According to me computers and internet can help them in big way.

This holiday season I want to raise $500 to setup a computer center at Kodagalli near SriRangapatna. I am personally going there during the holidays to setup the workspace.

These computers will help them to be in touch with the world, to make best natural, sustainable products and sell the same at online bazaar.

Please consider giving to my Holiday Wish, and together we can make the world a better place. If you can't afford to donate, I'd really appreciate if you'd share this page with your friends.

Dec/15: Friends have been really generous and we have been able to raise $140 with in two days.

Dec/16: We reached $255 today morning. The wishes URL doesn't show the latest info. They say its a bug and it will be fixed.

Dec/26: $275 as of today.

Dec/30: $325.

    is there any other way of donating? like PayPal? I don’t wish to spill my CC info all over the place…i hope you know what I mean…

    Thej, would really appreciate it if you could blog your experience based on this visit.

    I have a hypothesis that a fair bit of training would also need to go hand in hand, but not sure where the focus needs to be.

    I’m also curious to understand the nature of entrepreneurial aspirations. My mind tends to gravitate towards ecommerce and BPO, but I’m sure that’s too naive.

    @Lobo got your $10 to my paypal account. I will transfer it to Ubuntu. Thanks a lot.

    We have about 4/5 high school educated women. We are planning to teach them to use computer mainly to communicate using email, send/receive pictures which will help them in business etc.
