In my opinion, here are the TOP 10 COUNTRIES with the most immediate,
meaningful and structured OLPC/Sugar volunteer opportunities today:
- Cambodia - http://cambodiapride.org
- France - http://olpc-france.org
- Ghana - http://ghanatogether.org
- Haiti - http://unleashkids.org/category/haiti
- Kenya - http://google.com/search?q=ntugi and
- Lesotho - http://laptopstolesotho.org
- Malaysia - http://olpcbasecamp.blogspot.com
- Nepal - http://olenepal.org
- Peru - http://escuelab.org and Puno
- USA - Charlotte & countless opportunities, contact me
There are others of course! For the right people -- in any case, diverse
hardware/software and educator/mentoring skill-sets are ALWAYS needed :-)
Plz write me personally if you find great/resourceful/resilient people of
any age who would like to be set up with a mentor, folks with an
unquenchable curiosity who know how to live off the grid or not -- but
who've already reviewed http://olpcMAP.net and others' experiences within
deployment blogs like http://planet.laptop.org etc. And if so ask them to
include their resumes and what languages they speak, thanks so much !!
