Teens aid Kosovars

Sociologists often wring their hands and point to signs of apathy among today's teenagers. One place where this assumption doesn't wash is the Web site: www.e-teen.net/kosovo

The fledgling E-teen site (featured in a Sept. 2, 1998 Homefront article) is completely run by teens. Their latest endeavor is the Kosovo Relief Project, which offers an online way to raise money for refugees. But E-teen doesn't stop there. It also gives a history of the conflict and answers questions such as "What is ethnic cleansing," in simple terms. Young people directly affected by the war also contribute their stories.

E-teen is a project of Legacy International, which works with children in war zones.
