||Improving lives for the elderly & disabled
||With the use of Android powered devices which connect directly to the user?s television, I am helping to turn them into interactive computers. Through this, people who would otherwise be completely isolated can be connected to the outside world and their loved ones (through applications like Skype).
With the recent cut backs, elderly people are being further isolated.
My aim is to install these devices and teach the elderly and disabled people how to use them to help them overcome loneliness and isolation. I provide this service as a not for profit.
I need your help. By clicking on the link that follows and donating, you will be helping to fund a project aimed to improve the quality of the lives of our Elderly and Disabled|
