I had the pleasure of meeting Patrick Kiyemba, a university student from Uganda, at the 10th Annual iEARN Conference in Japan in the summer of 2003. Patrick joined educators from around the world to take part in this educational conference with a very specific goal in mind. Patrick came from Uganda to connect with those who could lend their expertise and support to his project to set up an Internet facility for young college students in Uganda who take part in the OPEN VISION YOUTH PROJECT.
I have asked Patrick to share his vision and dream for this center with others at MY HERO in hopes that this globally connected community can move together to help Patrick realize his goal to bring tools of technology and information to young people in Uganda. It is important that we all work together to end the digital divide.
