Who we are
Our website address is: http://thebookswap.org. We are a non profit set of 3 people coming together to provide a project which is hoped will be of benefit to the community. We are linked by the fact that we all support a children's village for orphaned and disadvantaged children in India. (healcharity.org.) Colin is the voluntary technical director of HEAL UK, a retired Senior Lecturer from Liverpool University, the founder and retired CEO of a web development company in Liverpool and a trustee of the charity HEAL UK. Bharath is a recent post-graduate of Computer Science and works with HEAL in India. Reddy is an orphaned student who is supported by HEAL and is doing Computer Science at University in India. Colin is mentoring Bharath and Reddy to enable them to continue to develop software tools to support the children's village in India and the wider aims of HEAL (Health and Education for all).
