Sierre Leone; new hope for war victims

Andrew Benson Greene, is a long-time advocate for the more than 20,000 victims of the diamond wars.

His vision has been to enable those marginalized by amputation with IT skills that would enable them to participate productively in society.   Andrew’s project was awarded first prize in the recent International ITU (United Nations) Challenge in Geneva.   This project is replicable, scalable and could serve as a social and economic rolel model for other developing nations.

Andrew and I have discussed measures to create a self-funding, vocational/educational model that will not only teach students the essential technical and business skills that will make them competitive in the marketplace but will also benefit local community economies.

Individuals and companies interested in discussing this educational mode or in helping in the development of interactive training materials should contact me quickly at this address:
