HURAC is planning to launch a brand new website by the first week of August. The international representative, Mr Kate, Wisdom Deeebeke who is currently in charge of the project aims to develop a website that will have all the contents about HURAC, the Ogoni struggle, the life and time of the world famous and celebrated activist: Ken Saro-Wiwa, alumni of HURAC and their contributions, current News about Ogoni and news on human rights issues in Ogoni, Ogoni Rights and Activism forum and any project HURAC currently embarks on.
The website will also welcome HURAC friends on facebook and twitter to send in news and articles they may wish to include in HURAC online monthly magazine.
The website domain which has been decided upon, designed and kept hidden from the general public will be made known as soon as possible. However, we shall still maintain our present webpage with WordPress. The company to host the domain with has already been decided and the project is hoped to kick-start by the second week of June. The website will go live by the first week of August and plans are on the way to ensure that the mobile version follows immediately.
We shall endeavour to keep you updated on the outcome of this proposed project. We will welcome comments and recommendations from the public on the look and structure of the website and anyone who can help financially as well to see that this project goes reality. We will also appreciate anyone who would like to volunteer as online editor and script editor of the proposed website. Details about how to apply will be released very soon.
