The plan now is to present this model at the World Congress in IT (WCIT) 2008 from 18-22 May 2008 in Malaysia.
Approximately 2500 delegates and 100 reporters will congregate to seek solutions for Poverty Eradication using IT technologies. The delegates include iconic Social Entrepreneurs like Bill Gates, Prof Yunus, Prof CK Pralahad, CEOs, Heads of governments etc. WCIT is often billed as the 'Olympics of IT'.
If the villagers are able to showcase their story, this Malaysian WCIT will be remembered as the best of them all. It will be recorded in the history books as the starting point where poverty eradication is tackled with a proven sustainable and scalable model.
We need your help to raise funds to pay for flight, accommodation and WCIT2008 registration fee for three TalasTronics villagers to present their Poverty Relief projects in Malaysia. The total sum anticipated is A$10,000.
This is your chance to join our journey in this world-transforming effort.
If you feel that this effort is genuine and are willing to contribute, please donate.
Your $20 (or even $10) could actually change the life of half of the world population. We appreciate any amount that you could offer. I would also suggest that you get your friends and donate as a group, as then the processing fee is lower.
You can either donate to me in cash (if you are in Adelaide), or just click the ‘ChipIn!’ button on the top left side panel. It will bring you to a PayPal page, where you can choose to use PayPal, major credit cards or even some bank accounts.
We all hope that the Kyrgyzstan Villagers will prove once and for all there is hope and help for the 3 billion under privileged people!
