What is it?

S4G, the un-mediated, not moderated social platform

Have you ever thought you have something to “express” with a social dimension but never had the opportunity to do it?

Then S4G is what you are looking for:

  • Open, unrestricted and easy to use
  • Three mediums to choose from: TEXT, VIDEO, PHOTO
  • A way to express your ideas, reflections and expertise, on social issues and broader development and society at large
  • You do not need to be an expert but just passionate about what you share

The Bus-A Poem for Valentine's Day

Micro Text Sharing
Categories: 

We hadn't  met

But exchanged seats

As my window opened

At a rest stop we talked

We had separate seats

and then

I sat next to her

As someone took my seat

She drifted to sleep

Leaning my way

I asked, “Do you want to lean on me?”

Trusting, she said, “yes”.

It happened again

I held her hand

I stroked her hair

She shared photos from her phone

Our hands touched

I explored her hand as if I knew her

She did the same

She stood up to go

One last touch

Wisdom Wednesday: Martin Punaks,Why orphanage volunteering is not a good idea after all

Video Sharing

Martin Punaks, Country Director of Next Generation Nepal and convener of the “Wisdom Wednesday” initiative on international volunteerism in children homes or orphanages offers a picture of the current situation of children living in children homes in Nepal. Evidence shows that there are more harms than benefits in having an experience as an international volunteer in an orphanage home. Of course no doubts that there are excellent children homes run by real social workers but there are many cases of fraudsters who set up children homes as a business and this should not be allowed.
