The organisations and people signatories to this declaration believe that the development of the Information Society should be for the benefit of all citizens, communities, and peoples of the world, regardless of race, social position, creed, gender or age.. They believe that exclusion of millions of people from the benefits of ICT either through poverty, disability or any other involuntary exclusion -the digital divide- is unfair, undesirable and avoidable and that, together, we have the force to change this reality for the better.. They commit themselves to campaign and work to make true the potential of the digital opportunity for democracy and sustainable development and reduce the divide within and between countries.. The signatory organisations and individuals acknowledge that:.. ICT are fundamental to the development of a sustainable global digital or knowledge economy, to employment creation and, generally, to the improvement in the quality of life and work of individuals, communities and civil society;..

  • Title: History
    Descriptive info: Brief History.. The www.. e-inclusionsite.. org website was born in 2002 out of an ambition to contribute to the development of a global e-inclusion movement.. It contains a.. Declaration on the Digital Divide.. ,the.. Small Fund Award.. and the.. The.. was conceived for people rather than institutions as a way to personalize the presence of signatories.. Automatic statistical processing and visualization of the signatories was intended to provide an idea of the characteristics and evolution of the signatory movement.. Clicking Mechanism.. was conceived to help raise funding for project from poor areas of the world while stimulating any person in the world to become a “donor.. ” The original funding concept worked as follows:.. (a).. an sponsoring organization provided funding in exchange for prominent visibility of its logo in the website (e.. g.. , social responsibility branding).. Other branding opportunities were also possible.. (b).. each €1 donated by an sponsor was valued at 20 clicks, that is, €5 cents per click.. Or put in another way, every times a person clicked in the site, €5 cents of the sponsorship money were released for projects from poor areas of the world.. Having reached.. 1 million clicks for the GJC 2002 and 2004.. , the released funds were used, in 2002, to support the attendance of the leaders of winning project to a two-week course on entrepreneurship and innovation at.. Santa Clara University.. , California, and in 2004, to award €5000 to the winning projects – URL link along with support for their development plans.. Change of Clicking-Funding Relationship – GJC 2007.. For the GJC 2007, the clicking mechanism added a further 1 million clicks, to reach a total of 2 million  ...   accumulation of over 8 million clicks at €0.. 05.. Thus, for the GJC 2007, the ratio of the €425,000 pledged by Cooperazione Italiana and the 1 million clicks available translated in a value of €0.. 425 per click.. This solution underscored the importance of flexibility in the relationship between available funds and amount of clicks gathered.. For this reason, since the GJC 2007 onwards, the click will operate as a “floating currency,” with its value determined by the ratio between the available funding and the actual number of clicks gathered at a given point in time.. Thus, sometimes the € value per click will be higher, some other times will be lower.. For the GJC 2009, the funding available from the Clicking mechanism of the e-inclusionsite.. org goes back to the concept of Small Fund Award, with prizes of €5,000 each as in the GJC 2004.. At February 2009, we have gathered €15,000, meaning the availability of three prizes at €5000 each to be given to project from poor areas of the world during the GJC 2009 Award Ceremony in October 2009.. At the same time, we continue to work to gather further funding to be able to increase the number of awards to be given during the Ceremony.. Another positive change is that 100 percent of the funding available in the Small Fund Award of the GJC 2009 will go to the projects.. This supersedes the previous concept whereby the organizers retained 15% of the funds gathered from sponsors to cover the costs of running the website..

Projects receiving Small Fund Award.. Five projects were selected to receive the Small Fund Award of €5,000 each (See Table 1)..

  • Title: Dreams
    Descriptive info: Thoughts about dreams.. Send your dreams, poems, pictures.. and they will be placed online.. Write to thoughts@e-inclusionsite.. org.. Maybe I am just a dreamer, but I am not the only one.. - John Lennon.. It is not true that people.. stop pursuing dreams because they grow old, they grow old because.. they stop pursuing dreams!.. (Adapted by A.. Molina from a letter attributed to Gabriel Garcia Marquez).. POVERTY.. I'm hungry, but you can't hear my shouts.. I'm lonely, cold and frightened.. I feel there is no one to care.. I watch you walk past,.. You do not see me sitting here.. As a tear rolls down my cheek,.. I think of life as passing me by,.. Week after week.. There seems no escape,.. No hide away place,.. I'm raped off all my dignity and grace.. So I am forced to begging off people who walk on by,.. They seem not to care,.. That I'm skin, bones and fearful to die.. Then someone across the street catches my eye.. She's dressed in a skimpy blouse.. And tight, short skirt.. As the fellows walk past,.. She's starting to flirt.. I watch her with pride.. As she tries to hide,.. The pain of poverty,.. That has cut her with a knife.. She's a woman like me,.. Raped of dignity,.. Having no where to go,.. She's had to make her money.. Perhaps she has a family,.. Even some kids,.. It seems there are others doing the same,.. Then I wonder if this is for me,.. Playing this game.. As there seems no escape,.. It seems like I'll be looked at as just another face.. I'm frightened  ...   This is what lifes like living on the street.. It isn't fun, it isn't good,.. It's not how I imagined.. It hurts, it humiliates,.. I've lost all my pride,.. Now I know,.. I have nowhere to hide.. Melissa Leigh.. ODE.. We are the music makers,.. And we are the dreamers of dreams,.. Wandering by lone sea-breakers,.. And sitting by desolate streams ;.. World-losers and world-forsakers,.. On whom the pale moon gleams ;.. Yet we are the movers and shakers.. Of the whole world for ever, it seems.. With wonderful deathless ditties.. We build up the world's great cities,.. And out of a fabulous story.. We fashion an empire glory ;.. One man with a dream, at pleasure,.. Shall go forth and conquer a crown ;.. And three with a new song's measure.. Can trample an empire down.. We, in the ages lying.. In the buried past of the earth,.. Built Nineveh with our sighing,.. And Babel itself with our mirth ;.. And o'erthrew them with prophesying.. To the old of the new world's worth ;.. For each age is a dream that is dying,.. And one that is coming to birth.. A.. W.. E.. O'Shaughnessy (1844-1881).. THE WONDERFUL DREAM OF MARSHA GOREN.. Hand in hand across the lands,.. Helping others by clicking together,.. It only takes one click a day,.. Show them you care and it will pay.. Together the children and their families.. will march to a better world.. Let the message be heard,.. It only takes one click for us to save.. the children's future.. So come to dream a dream every day,.. once a day with your teacher!.. Marsha Goren..
