Brought to you by the Rochester Enable, advancing a global vision of Connected Humanitarianism
e-NABLE.org is a multi-lingual, trans-national hub for the movement. e-NABLE.org hosts web-pages for e-NABLE’s Strategic Planning Committee, Research Committee, and for the EnableFund mini-grant program. e-NABLE.org is also a research platform for collecting data and creating technologies to assess, improve, and generalize the e-NABLE movement. We call these TEEEM Technologies: “Tools for Enabling Effective and Enlightened Mobs.” Comments, questions? e-mail JSchull@e-NABLE.org
In 2013, Jon Schull founded e-NABLE, established the MAGIC ACT/e-NABLE lab at RIT, and recruited Skip Meetze as full time volunteer extroardinaire. In 2014, Schull co-founded the 501(c)3 Enable Community Foundation (ECF), which subsequently diverged from e-NABLE’s more communitarian non-centralized style. In 2016 , Schull resigned from ECF and retired from RIT. He and and Meetze immediately founded the Rochester Enable Lab at Vertus High School (and Re-NABLE.org). As we see it, Re-NABLE.org and e-NABLE.org are part of an emerging “Connected Humanitarians” movement: volunteers using open source methodologies and emerging technologies to develop solutions for under-served populations worldwide. We are developing Re-NABLE.org, e-NABLE.org and ConnectedHumanitarians.org to illuminate that path, and to help lead the way.
