"Dear Peter Balaba. I really like the underlying principle of cutting out the middle man and give more money to the persons who do the actual job: the farmers. I am very curious how this develops. Best regards."

Hello Peter, are you going to participate in the photo contest? Given the fact that you work with a telecentre and have a vast experience in telecentre activities, can you please forward some pictures from your telecentre ( taken by you) or else, you can encourage other telecentre operators or users in your community to participate? I am sure their a good experiences you can share with us and that are worth to win reconnection and awards from telecentre.org.

Waiting to hear from you!!

Regards,

San!
