Averdade - The Truth

Averdade is a free paper distributed to the local people of Maputo, Mozambique. Every week 50,000 copies, with amazing local stories are distributed to people that could not otherwise afford a paper. The big idea is that people shouldn't have to choose between buying food or buying the news. Information is a right.

 What I did:

I spent a month in Mozambique as a guest of Eric Charas. While there I worked on their Joomla based site,Averdade (it's in Portugeuse...). I also rebuilt a distribution database in MS Access 2007 and taught the Averdade staff how to use it. Finally I tried to create videos they could use to help sell ad space and tell the story of Averdade to english speaking investors. My video blog of the trip: http://georgeweiner.blogspot.com.


Other organizations I help or have helped:

  • Wells Mountain Foundation, funding youth education in underdeveloped countries. Support these grants.
  • ASPCA, protecting the hell out of animals for a really long time. Adopt a pet!
  • Darius Goes West, Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD) is the number one fatal genetic disease affecting children in the world. Watch their movie and donate

I work on side projects for organizations that have the potential to make change. Please get in touch with me if you have something interesting!
