Great!  We always need more volunteers and grassroots supporters in new
countries.  OLPC is throwing a grassroots conference this week in Boston and
this weekend in NYC.  One of the issues we're working on fixing is a
handbook/guide for grassroots volunteers such as yourself start moving

As far as Uganda: there is currently
http://wiki.laptop.org/go/OLPC_Ugandawhich appears to be a fellow
volunteer who wants to get a project started.
The user was active on our wiki as of late May, so he is likely still

At the end of the event and as the week progresses we will be putting some
of our results and findings on this mailing list and on the wiki.  If you're
in NYC you're more than welcome to come join us this weekend:
