More non-profits

venture philanthorpy they’re calling it.
Anyway, more non-profits doing interesting things
Google has decided to fund a group that’s raising literacy rates
by subtitling Indian television and poo music.

Another company is providing free voice mail for the poor.
The results have been 50% of users finding work in 2 months of

It’s strange that just providing people with simple stuff like
voice mail, cars, or even same language subtitles is helping out so much.

peace,
