One World Academy

Dear All,

the company ADOBE one month ago released Adobe Slate, an iPad app for iPad, a free app that lets a range of business and educational users construct polished multi-part stories with high-quality images, text and layouts. Toady, I decided to find out the potential of this app and checked how it works. So, I present to you my very first presentation, created with the app “Slate”.
Check out this presentation of the OWA Campus in India.
Thanks, Rainer

Meeting Pappa in the orphanage

Today, I was honored to meet Mr. Vidyaakar, called „pappa“ as he is the father of more than 2000 children.
1983, he found a helpless child at a cinema hall in Chennai crying for some love. He knew that he can go beyond living his routine life to care for this stranger like his own daughter. Three decades later, his family has grown from a little child to over 2000 Children, all abandoned for no fault of theirs. These children were either found abandoned on the streets or left at his facilities. Most of them though were born to women Who was suffering from mental illness and who are unable to take care of themselves, leave alone these children.
But now, Mr. Vidyaakar has managed to feed them, take care of them and rehabilitate them back to where they belong. Today he leads an orphanage that offers a number of services, including providing food, shelter and educational facilities for them irrespective of their age, sex, religion, nationality, caste or mental capacity…(See Pappa on the right top photo)

And so taking the long way home through the market I slow my pace down… To enjoy just being somewhere, rather than rushing from somewhere, to somewhere. And connecting to people around me… And smile to myself. Click the images to see the larger and better version!
