The Committee to Protect Bloggers has launched an interesting project called Blogswana aimed at helping educate folks about the AIDS epidemic in Botswana. The concept is to have twenty university students at a major Botswanan university become partners with citizens whose lives have been touched by the AIDS epidemic. The students would interview their partners once a month and start a blog on their behalf, writing in their partner’s voice. Blogswana is trying to use technology to provide a megaphone for folks who otherwise wouldn’t be heard. Sounds like a fantastic and worthwhile project.
