SEMA is community.

SEMA is connection.

Your tax-deductible contribution to this young network helps ensure that more SEMA members are able to connect with reliable internet access. In many parts of the world, the factor that limits internet connection is the cost. Being able to go online means SEMA members can communicate with one another directly far more easily, and can coordinate awareness raising campaigns together. Being able to go online means SEMA members can build both community and individual capacities through online training and coaching. Being able to go online means these survivors can better share their stories, and speak out on their terms.
