About LLK in SL
Since January 2010 Live and Learn in Kenya NGO is also online in the Second Life charity community – Nonprofit Commons. The managers of the Nonprofit Commons go though every detail of an organization’s registration form to assure themselves that it really is a charitable non-profit organization and not just 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 or Live and Learn in Kenya International in the search. LLK also belongs to the world-known organization Techsoup which also works in Second Life.
