Being away from my beloved village for almost six years, the love for my homeland increased day by day. There has not been a single day when I don't remember my country, the whole village in general and particularly the streets of Waisa.
Waisa's population consists of almost 12000 including at home and overseas, but there has never been a central point for communication. I would like to use my website waisa.net as a way of reaching out to people from Waisa. I would like to offer people who have come from Waisa an invitation to put their experiences and memories of the village on to my web space. People will have the opportunities through feedback and blogs.
The idea of building the website came in my mind almost three years ago when I was doing a project in the University of Bradford for the IWT module. I created a simple news website for University which was showing the latest news locally and internationally. After the successful submission of that project I promised to myself that I will build a website for my village one day.
This site will include the people at home and also those who live overseas, because they play a significant role in the developing of Waisa. Waisa.net also belongs to those who are not the residence of Waisa but they like Waisa in general and have some links with the people of the village.
We need your individual ideas how to help our people and how to improve the lifestyles in the Waisa. Some of you will know that Waisa is quite poverty stricken and not as flourishing as it should be. Today we are facing huge challenges particularly the education. Waisa does not offer the people with very good education; people feel the need to travel to the outskirts for an education.
