Yvonnne commented on Creating a physical hub for skills exchange

Hi Rob!

Sure thing! We'll probably be able to think about test driving new ideas after August, but we'll let you know!


Yvonnne commented on Engage Refugees

I Think that expertises have to encounter. We cannot pretend that we know best than the other. Your expertise is very valuable but refugees and children in need exist all over the globe with some problems you experience. I have a school in Rio de janeiro, Brasil, specialised in children and youth with cognition problems due to violence. My first PHd thesis was writen after a reseach in countries at war in 5 african countries where children did not learn correctly and my life was focused in researching a better way to teach traumatised children. Our experiences are not unique. many people around the world researches how to improve mankind. You and me are one of them. see our site:

Yvonnne commented on Skills marketplace

Very good idea Brad. It is very difficult to find sponsors and thousand of good ideas get lost for lack of funds. We are a school in Rio de janeiro, Brazil, specialised in children with cognition problems due to violence. I have been travelling and working in Africa and those learning problems are everywhere. I tailores a pedagogy for deblocking traumatised children. Today this method is public policy in many public schools in risk areas around Brazil. See our site:
I congratulate you for having this idea. Unfortunally we need funds to make the life of children better around the world.
