Dear Friends from Genderchangers,
We have heard of your organization some time ago from people involved in organizing Ladyfest Amsterdam. We are writing to you with a request for possible collaboration in ICT projects. In particular we are looking for volunteers that would be interested to bring technical knowledge to our projects.
Women on Web (www.womenonweb.org) is a digital community of women who have had abortions and individuals and organizations that support abortion rights. We are an online project that helps women in countries where there is no access to safe abortion services to get medical abortion. We furthermore carry out campaigns that focus on improving access to information using ICT strategies, among others. In our campaigns we usually work together with activists and grassroots organizations.
Women on Web
works closely with Women on Waves, an organization that sails to countries where abortion is illegal. We have joined forces in setting up strategies such as hotlines (see: http://www.womenonwaves.org/index.php?lang=en) that provide information on safe abortion methods in countries in Latin America, Asia and most recently, Africa.
We are currently looking for people that are motivated to be part of a project that uses ICT strategies in activism for reproductive health and rights of women and who are interested in exploring the potential of digital network technologies within feminism framework.
Through our campaigns we have seen the potential of for example, linking mobile technology to social activism and the amazing developments that are taking place in this area (mainly initiated by grassroots groups in the developing world). Our
organization would be interested to work with people that can investigate more closely from a technical perspective, the possibilities of ICT and mobile technology (different apps, sms, using cell phones in activist campaigns). Also we are looking for people that can contribute to improving the websites (both Women on Web and Women on Waves).
We hope that Genderchangers might know people interested in working together with Women on Web. Our organization currently works with about 30 volunteers from around the world. For this particular projects, the volunteer should ideally be located in Amsterdam where we have our office. Also, important would be that the volunteer is communicative and likes sharing knowledge with others. Would you know people that might be interested? Could you share this message with them?
Thank you very much.
Looking forward to your reply.
Kindest regards, Kinga
on behalf of the Women on Web team
