CNVLD set to launch websites

The Cambodian National Volleyball League (Disabled) is embarking on a substantial technology drive as part of its build up for next July’s WOVD Standing Volleyball World Cup at Olympic Stadium.

The CNVLD, which enjoys the unique distinction of hosting three successive biennial World Cups since 2007, is drawing logistical support from the United Nations Volunteer Program in the creation of two new websites dedicated exclusively to following the event and promoting the cause of Standing Volleyball worldwide.

UN experts will work with a CNVLD tech team in developing World Cup specific website www.2011volleyballworldcup.org. But of greater significance is the newly designed www.standingvolleyball.net, a site dealing with the latest news and discussions in the world of Standing Volleyball.

“Standing Volleyball is the most cost-effective way of enabling the disabled, especially amputees from post-conflict regions, and it is gaining popularity and recognition around the world. These websites will go a long way in bringing the communities together,” said CNVLD Secretary General Christopher Minko.

With a marked increase in the number of web users around the world, the CNVLD is counting on mobilising a collective global voice to launch an appeal to restore Standing volleyball to the Para-Olympics.
