Congratulations to BOSCO, winner of the 2010 Breaking Borders award

Since 2006, BOSCO Uganda has been bringing a chance to be heard to rural areas and internally displaced persons camps in Northern Uganda, in the form of low-powered and solar computers and high-speed Internet access. Information and communication technologies, give the war-affected people of Northern Uganda a means to participate in the global dialogue. And Wikispaces has always been proud to be a small part of that work.

Last Thursday, May 6, 2010, BOSCO Uganda was awarded the Breaking Borders award from Global Voices and Google. This award recognizes their courage and innovation in finding ways to broadcast voices that might otherwise be too soft and too far away to hear.

Our sincere congratulations to BOSCO Uganda, both on the award, and on their ongoing work in promoting the freedom of expression.
