INTERNET USERS' STORIES
Ania (16 years old) and Bartek (15 years old) almost constantly on-line
fantasy lovers. They write articles, reviews, invent game storylines, record video tutorials and post them on various websites. Thanks to them and hundreds of thousands of other enthusiasts, everyone has access to the information they need and possibility to develop their interests, regardless of where they live. That's e-volunteering!
Janek (24 years old) and Anita (24 years old) psychology students
they gather job experience on-line: they provide others with support as e-volunteers under the watchful eyes of professionals. That's e-volunteering!
Dominika (43 years old) history and civic education teacher
she created an information service for her community. Local residents can post there their own articles, interviews, and photos with the help of its services - anyone can be a citizen journalist. Thanks to many people in her age group, for whom the Internet is the most important means of communication, the circulation of information in her community greatly improved! That's e-volunteering!
Henryk (70 years old) retired civil engineer
he shares his knowledge of the sciences in his spare time: he gives free private lessons to middle/high school students studying in Poland on-line. That's e-volunteering!
Adam (38 years old) lawyer
he advises NGOs on financial matters after work - for free! That's e-volunteering!
Good Network Foundation (Fundacja Dobra Sieć) acts on an European level
with the help of e-volunteers this foundation managed to develop the English version of its Website www.e-wolontariat.pl. If it wasn't for them, the translation process would have taken much longer!
