I have a friend in Uganda that's trying to procure donations for the IWW initiative at Makerere University. I thought that I might be able to get the great people of IOPS to lend a hand. The idiegogo campaign closes in 4 days and we're still $552 away from reaching the goal of $800. Please do what you can and spread this campaign.
You can find the campaign here: http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/305340
"We are requesting for assistance to help us purchase some equipments that are vital in our performing this work, namely a computer, preferably a lap top($400), printer($100) and a digital camera with video recording facility($300) all totaling to $800.
The equipments will enable us in communicating and transmitting data to fellow workers within and outside Uganda and accessing internet and printing materials.
A long with establishing Industrial Workers Union in the University, there are issues we tackle.The issues include but are not limited to:
Searching and exposing employers, bosses who mistreat and harass their employees.
Bosses who don’t pay and or under pay their workers.
Bosses who discriminate workers because of their physical disabilities and health situations especially workers living with AIDS.
We will be publishing articles in local and foreign newspapers workers conditions in Uganda also a young workers monthly newspaper will eventually be launched at the university. " -Kusiima Daisy
