Live and Learn in Kenya in Second Life
Since January 2010 Live and Learn in Kenya NGO is also online in the Second Life virtual charity community – Nonprofit Commons. The managers of the Nonprofit Commons go through every detail of an organization’s registration form to assure itself that it really is a charitable non-profit organization and not a computer scam. LLK operates from a virtual office where people can come in and inform themselves about our work in Kenya, look at photos and, if an LLK member is present, hold a conversation. There are real people behind all of the so-called avatars, so real conversations are held – as well as meetings – either by typing your message or by speaking over a microphone. A child in Kenya – the orphan, Veronica - has already been sponsored through a Second Life contact – which makes it all worthwhile. When you log in to Second Life type either "Brique Topaz", "LLK", or "Feed a Smile" in the Search. LLK also belongs to the world-known organization Techsoup which also works in Second Life.

It's all under the motto: Feed a Smile. The proceeds go towards feeding the LLK children in Nakuru, Kenya (almost 55.000 meals have been donated through Feed a Smile so far). Second Life has no borders, so you can meet people from all over the world.
