Request from Uganda

Request are often dry and dull, not giving much details, not explaining the real local situation and for whom it is meant. Such request state there is plenty need, so send books. Then we answer -if possible- right away that Demotech does not distribute books, but has its websites and video's at YouTube. I also always ask if Demotech can help with anything they find in our websites or video's.

I seldom hear back.

Different this time from Uganda. Nicholas asked for books, within an hour I explained about our websites, the following morning Nicholas mailed me that he was happy to get Demotech's info and that he planned to work with it.

Now I have to mail him that the info is not yet containing enough details for actually making the Hy2U, though from the videos, indeed people could get enough clues to try.

We wish to support Nicholas community a bit better. We have a new design for the Hy2U in the pipeline. It would be great to try it out together with them. So we need a little more time. And wouldn't it be nice to know how the women groups in Nicholas community think about making Hy2U's for themselves?

Yes, Demotech is hungry for feedback. We have to know how people receive our information. Of course it always is too little compared to going there ourselves. But that is life, no money for such long travels, neither time. And yes, by now living in 2013, we really should get all out of Internet and learn to communicate effectively.

There is Skype, there are cheap phone connections, almost every cell phone has a camera build in. Even better: people in Uganda are used to organizing their life around the info the give and get with cell phones and internet.

So it is time for a test. Starting NOW! I want to succeed with the communication with the community and specially the women groups from Nicolas community.

Nicholas, let's do it!

Dear Nicholas!

At Demotech, that is just a one-man organization working with some friends, we work hard to create designs that may help you. Please first of all read and consider the stories and ideas you'll find at http://www.hy2u.net . That's a good start for hygiene and increased comfort, with no restrictions in availability, everybody has what it takes to make it. At Demotech we are very proud of this achievement. Go ahead with it, do not let us down! Let me know what you think, please discuss it in the women groups in your community. If possible let people watch the videos with these links:
