It’s World Refugee Day!

On Friday, I wrote about a social networking project, Commkit, that some VSee people are involved in, and I just wanted to share this video screen capture of i-Act co-founder and director, Gabriel Stauring, talking about the life-changing impact this social networking access has had on the children in the refugee camps and the community as a whole.  He made a trip to Chad this year to bring Commkits into the refugee camps and to train people to use them. Btw, he’s sharing this at a lecture via VSee (starting about 1:09:00)!  Also sorry about my bad laptop mic.

    My pleasure! I generally feel like technology has made our lives more complicated rather than truly better 😛 But it was most inspiring to hear Yuen-lin and Gabriel talk about the difference CommKit is making in the lives of these refugees who feel like they have been forgotten for the last 7 years.
