Inspired by personal experience, Mr. Osadchiy launched the Family Ribbon, an online service that gives newcomers to the Internet a quick course on how to use Skype, Facebook and online photo services. Family Ribbon’s mission is to enable older persons to use the online communication tools quickly and successfully, to enhance family communications. The programme also has a function to remind seniors when to take their medicines or remember their grandchildrens’ birthdays.
