Blog:Two projects

There are two projects I like seriously:

First: The Fokushima Project of the Deutsch-Japanische Gesellschaft (Niederrhein). Children in the area of Fokushima are sent for holidays to Okinawa where they can play outside and camp at the beach without worrying about contaminating themself by doing so. You can find details to this project on web page:

Second: The Project Online Roleplay Game (PORG) where a team is developing a Go based 'online roleplay game'. The basic idea of the project is to make use of the popularity of online roleplay games to propagate the game of Go and also to help beginners on their way to ~10k. Any financial profit that might be generated will be used to support other Go projects as a recreational sport, especially in the youth sector. Bur for now they are searching for more sponsors and collaborators. Anyone who wants to learn more about it can follow the presentation of Janine Böhme in the  Kleiner Saal 2 tomorrow (2nd of August) at 16am.
