Session Overview

Beta testing of our software app indicates we need to improve our interface to make the app easier to use by children, those with disabilities, and those not very familiar with information technology. We want advice on how to formulate a project that will be attractive to a user interface programmer & be doable. We have never used Taproot before.

Nonprofit Overview

Our mission is to organize children and adults in residential areas, as units of Inclusive Neighborhood Parliaments, including Children's Parliaments. Our forums being small, normally about thirty persons/families, ensures that even “small voices” are heard, and every person gets recognition and scope to grow.

Children and adults decide together on matters that affect them. Instead of powerlessness, they have agency. For children, such involvements are a hands-on training for collaborative. citizenship. Including adults, there can be global impact in the life of each and every human being.

These forums are federated, leading to children’s parliaments at village/school, sub-district, district , state, nation. After nearly two decades, 100,000s of neighborhood units of people public are already organized and federated in India. More projects have been started in Africa, Europe and South America.
