Great social initiatives-Indian courier service hires only deaf workers

India has one of the largest deaf populations in the world, but social stigmas have eliminated many job opportunities for the roughly 6 percent of the population that is affected. Aiming to empower this isolated group economically, Mirakle Couriers is a service provider that hires only deaf workers.

Tution Free Education - University of the People

In a new inititative, University of the People (UoPeople) is offering tuition free education as an online university dedicated to the global advancement and democratization of higher education.
This tuition free university embraces the worldwide presence of the Internet and dropping technology costs to bring tuition free and university-level studies within reach to millions of people across the world.

Its really amazing and wonderful, especially considering the rising costs of education world-wide. I wish all success to this wonderful endeavor.
