About the project Edit

Recovery Network is meant to be a platform for those who are in the process of recovery. Together.weinrecovery.org is not restricted to recovering addicts. It has useful information for all those who want to know more about addiction and for the professionals working in drug abuse prevention. It is meant to help people in recovery become productive members of society and to reclaim their rightful place in society. The effort is aimed at addressing a gap in the whole recovery of the person and to enable successfully recovering people to help their fellow recovering addicts. We in Recovery is a kind of online social network where one could find ways and means to understand how recovery happens and how to integrate with normal society.

    DEF - Digital Knowledge Center

    Digital Knowledge Center (DKC) is an initiative of Digital Empowerment Foundation (DEF) & National Internet Exchange of India (NIXI) to function as an ‘Online repository’ of best digital contents for development in India and South Asia.

    With the incoming of new technology in ICT and digital content technology along with various technology delivery platforms, a lot many interventions in digital content have been taking place in South Asia. Interventions are visible in all major areas – Education, Learning, Health, Governance, Entertainment, Localization, Commerce, Culture, Environment, Tourism, Infrastructure and so on. Creation of digital content, its deployment, service delivery and usage has increased each day.

    While these developments are taking place, it is equally critical to have these interventions and practices shared, exchanged, and deployable from one place to another. For this to happen, one needs to have a resource bank available for learning, sharing and replication. Digital Knowledge Centre works as such a platform in audio-visual documentation format, which provides solutions to many of our social, economic, cultural and governance challenges.
