The Kubatana Trust of Zimbabwe, incorporating the NGO Network Alliance Project (NNAP), aims to strengthen the use of email and Internet strategies in Zimbabwean NGOs and civil society organisations. Kubatana makes human rights and civic education information accessible from a centralised, electronic source. We have an electronic network of over 250 NGOs and CSOs. Each Kubatana partner has what we call a fact sheet in our online directory. Our project has given many NGOs an Internet presence without them having to spend resources on a fully-fledged web site. Being involved lessens one? feeling of despair while helping us to keep inspired. As Joan Baez said: Action is the antidote to despair. Our email listserve and regular email newsletters keep thousands of Zimbabweans and regional and international subscribers informed.
