"I've seen and met angels wearing the disguise of ordinary people living ordinary lives." Tracy Chapman, American singer and songwriter
I, Jytte Nhanenge, am grateful to many people for willingly sharing their valuable knowledge, and giving their precious time, energy, and assistance, in order to help me build the Intsangano educational website. They are acknowledged below:
Felisberto Elija Nhanenge spent many hours learning how technically to build websites. He eventually managed to teach me, and he helped me create this beautiful site. I am grateful to him for investing his spare time and genius into this work. During the process, I received precious assistance from Gregory Hilbert and Suzanne Sparling, the Founders of the SEN4Earth website. I am indebted to these three people for their caring, keen, and clever assistance. In addition and importantly, I received much help from Weebly Support; in fact, their help is ongoing! In our neo-liberal world, where most businesses are focusing on maximizing economic profit-making, it is rare to experience one that is prioritizing professional, patient, prompt, and kind customer care service. Weebly does that and I am therefore glad I chose Weebly as my website builder. Conclusively, since I am not well versed in the computerized world, this website would not have been possible without the willing assistance from the above mentioned people.
Although my computer abilities are limited seen with a professional eye, I am quite happy how far I have come. What I know as a user, I learned first via my work. Later on Felisberto Elija Nhanenge opened my eyes to more technical issues. During the last couple of years, I have added quite some computer skills due to the kind assistance of Zen Whisperingtree. Zen is fabulous in computer technology, clear in her explanations to novices like me, and she is even more precious as a friend. All in all, I am grateful to my clever and patient computer teachers.
In order to get some necessary, initial feed-back, critique, and advice on the content and technical experience of the Intsangano educational website, I gathered a group of volunteers – being people from all walks of life – asking them to critically review the website. I am grateful to them for spending their time and energy on carefully reading through the website, giving me their honest opinion, and catching my mistakes. I certainly learned a lot. The review team includes the following, mentioned in alphabetic order: Bodil Nydal Engell, my friend Carole, Felisberto Elija Nhanenge, Gregory Hilbert, Mariette Grobler, Micheline Vancutsem, Olivia Schlosser, Richard Zane Smith, Rita De Vos, Rose Becke, Susanne Rash, Suzanne Sparling, and Zen Whisperingtree. In order to correct possible mistakes made during the alteration, I was delighted when Olivia Schlosser offered to read through the whole website one more time at the end of the review.
Finally, I am grateful to my friend Olivia Schlosser for making her language skills, vast knowledge, and honest opinions readily available all through the period of building this website. On an almost daily basis, Olivia quickly replied to my many language, grammar, design, and other questions. I feel fortunate enjoying Olivia's abundant care.
The Danish/Norwegian photographer Frederik Johannes Gottfried Klem, who was born in Copenhagen in 1823, and who died in Oslo 1895, created the yin and yang image, which is used in this website. The copyright holder made the image freely available in the public domain via wikimedia.org. I am grateful to Mr. Klem, the copyright holder, and Wikimedia for giving me the opportunity to use this beautiful image. In order graphically to show the importance of adding more feminine yin energy to alleviate our global crises, I turned the image 90 degrees, thus placing the black, feminine yin force on top of the white, masculine yang force. Nevertheless, the two forces remain in a dynamic tension and hence in balance.
The background of the Intsangano educational website is covered with our lovely bougainvillea hedge, for which we have cared during 18 years. It conversely pays us back with beauty and security. Moreover, it is the home for numerous smaller animal and bird species.
