Skype at Orphans International
At Mobile World Congress this year, I bumped into Jim Luce of Orphans International. He set up the charity in 1999 to help orphaned or abandoned children, with a very simple guiding principle: that all children in the care of Orphans International must be given the same love and security that each of our team members would give to their own children.
We caught up a couple of weeks ago in New York, where I captured this short video. He talks about the work of Orphans International, and how they use Skype to run the company, as well as connect orphans with their sponsors using Skype video calls. It’s a great example of the way that Skype makes personal conversations possible – for the greater good.
