Challenges overcome by effort

Michael Park is a blind lawyer who lives in Pietermaritzburg, he develops software for the blind and has been working on open source programs to aid the blind in conjunction with other people all around the world from the constraints of his flat with little or no funding.

Microsoft recently sent me on a mission through South Africa too document some of South Africa's most inspirational achievers who have succeeded with their realising your potential program. Where they support and train people like Michael and hope them achieve there goals.

It was an eye opening experience and I found it insightfully eye opening.

Interesting that Microsoft is trying to help open source developers realise their potential.

It seems so unlike their business model.

Do you have a link to this project?
