Mozilla is celebrating the first ever Mozilla Service Week from 14th to 21st of September, 2009. The theme of the service week is to make a difference by using the Web for the betterment of the community. Mozilla believes that everyone should have the opportunity to know how to use the Internet and use it well. Anyone with the passion to share, give, engage, create and collaborate and has the skills to program, develop, write, design or just technical know how can join Mozilla Service Week.
The goal is to empower people to:
- Teach senior citizens how to use the Web.
- Show a non-profit how to use social networking to grow its base of supporters.
- Install a wireless network at a school.
- Create Web how-to materials for a library’s computer cluster.
- Refurbish hardware for a local computer center.
- Help a non-profit update its website or database.
- And, more!
Mark Surman, executive director of the Mozilla Foundation says:
“We’re inviting people to get involved with Mozilla in an active way, even if they can’t code, test or localize. It let’s anyone and everyone feel like they are contributing to the cause of building a better internet.”
