Hi all
I also jump in the water.
I will just appologize for my delay in response to the mails .
I will also check the doodle soon as am on mobile and the network is slow.
Just to add a little idea that I have at heart it will be a "DIGITAL
INCLUSION & DISABILITY PROJECT" is true up to now.i havr been doing in
inforlmally but I will really appreciate to collaborate on it with others
here who are interrested.
If you need more information feel free to ask me questions.
Thanks once more
