MCAST IICT student Kevin Borg reading an Extended Diploma in Software Development delivered a website for the Agara Foundation which now can be accessed via the following weblink: http://agarafoundation.org/. Agara Foundation is a non profit organisation, and its aim is to walk together with different communities and individuals all over the world to empower them in their respective environments.
The idea for the foundation is rooted in the distinct voluntary experiences of two individuals, whose paths converged after having returned from Ethiopia, in the summer of 2013. The beginning of this foundation is the realisation of a dream of going beyond a voluntary experience. The name ‘agara’ comes from the Amharic language, which is one of the main languages spoken in Ethiopia. Its meaning, walking together, reflects the vision of the foundation.‘agara’ envisions a global community in which every individual is an equal partner in its development. We seek to invest in relationships within communities and above all, empower their individuals, by coming together to cultivate a sense of growth, self-reliance, collaboration and continuity through supporting and establishing projects throughout the world. We are driven by the belief that human rights are inalienable and fundamental to each and every individual’s inherent dignity, and aim to promote them through awareness raising projects.
This project was supported by Mr Jean Paul Tabone, MCAST IICT lecturer and institute coordinator for student support who made sure that the project was delivered on time and as expected by Agara Foundation.
