Volunteer Skills maybe we can help
So once in a while i come across a website i really think needs improvement and i usually talk ,blog or rant about the issues it has .
My intention in all this is not to show that the developers didnt do a good job , I am just saying there is a lot of room for improvement .
There are a number sites on my radar at the moment
- The Ghana Ministry of Agriculture website (Open in FireFox)Thanks Kwabena for bringing it to my attention.
- The African Union Website . I blogged about the usability issues of this website earlier this year .
- The BarCamp Africa UK website (a shameless plug for me as i am one of the organizers and we use a wiki at the moment and looking to migrate to website next year )
Instead of writting a blog post everytime i see websites that are not what they should be , I propose we do something about it .
The Plan:I am seeking web developers,designers and usability consultants who will give thier skills pro bono(free) to consult on and even help in house teams to improve or even rebuild these websites .
My plea to the organisations :If you work for any of these organisations whose website is mentioned above please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org to see how we can help improve your website .
Also if you are a web developer,designer or usability consultant and wish to donate your skills to improve these website .please contact me at email@example.com.

Are you sure volunteering skills would be effective? Web designers want to be busy making money.
Keep up the good work.
I see your point in my case its for national pride that i volunteer , but it is proven volunteering has many advantages to volunteer
