WellDone

WellDone | Tudo o resto | Scoop.it

We started WellDone in 2007 with a simple goal, to drill one well in one village in Ghana. At that time, there were no strategic plans, no corporate sponsors, no administrative burdens. We began through the simple commitment of a group of friends, pooling our time, talents, and even finances to provide clean water for those who need it most. Since then, we've helped provide clean water to over fifty communities throughout the developing world, expanding in geographic focus, breadth of solutions, and diversity of supporters. Yet the founding spirit of WellDone remains intact - that lasting impact can be made through the collective effort of a group of regular individuals. We invite you to join in this story.

Escute rádios. Do mundo todo. Sem um rádio. | Tudo o resto | Scoop.it
Rádio é algo interessante. É uma mídia com alcance teoricamente infinito, ETs que o digam, mas é eminentemente local. Talvez por isso ele ainda sobreviva em tempos de internet, e este site que permite ouvir rádios do mundo inteiro passa essa sensação, de que estamos vivendo algo… local.
