Just wanted to raise some awareness about this website…

Nabuur is an online community which was set up to help people in developing nations help themselves.

Development projects or community groups can post on the website asking for help with a particular goal (eg. setting up a school) and volunteers help them to first set up a brief with all of the tasks necessary to achieve that goal, and then help them get it done.

Nabuur volunteers can select from a variety of tasks, including proposal drafting, design webpages, research and training.

The best thing is that even if you can’t physically get to a community to help them out, you can utilise the skills you have to help them from behind your own computer.
