Hi to all Members of the Group! I am an ProjectManager from Ukraine. We are making a Social Network for Kyiv youth in Ukraine. We are looking for Developers on the Ruby on Rails Framework. We are a non-profit organization at start, but we will reorganize to a comm. site when we grow up and then we can finnance your work. The Project is very interesting Here are some details^ First of all, our project is not just a site, it's community of Kiev's youth, real community, not just a web-community.
Goals of your project: 1. To unite and consolidate representatives of Kiev's youth; 2. To teach our generation how to build, to defend and to use own opinion concerning absolutely different aspects and phenomenons, how to shield yourself from the informational manipulation; 3. to prepare our generation for the future government of our country.
Audience: we're going to gather Kiev's high school students (last 3 years of middle education) and early University students (first two courses). We've unique right to promote our web-resource - as a core of our community, in the middle schools by using the functioning organization of high schoolers, which counts more then 350 members, by one in each school of Kiev. According to the current legislation of Ukraine no commercial can be placed in middle educational institute, except the information that concerns school and it's pupils. Only by gathering audience from schools we're going to get at least 5 users from each school, it means that at the beginning we're going to have more than 1500 users. Then by using the technology of the social-virus we're going to increase this number in few times.
Our methods: We're going to create web-publication, discussion forum, e-community mechanism: blogs, uploadable photo-albums, "dating" system and more different mechanisms, e.g. :system of knowledge-bank for students (elders will share their e-synopsizes from the University), moreover we're going to organize a lot of different events, that will unite users in real live.
