Fri Feb 5 20:32:03 EST 2010
Can't wait to see people Saturday all-day in NYC (many of us busing all
the way from Boston!) and also for a Great Haitian Dinner in Brooklyn --
once we kick out the reporters and the hard work's well-begun :-)
> HAITI FEAST ON EDUCATION INVITATION
> Even if you cannot make it to Saturday's full-day NYC Crisis Camp
> events (http://www.eventbrite.com/event/558710117) plz join our
> Haitian Creole for Education Community Dinner right afterwards,
> co-hosted with the One Laptop per Child/Sugar Labs NYC Volunteer
> Community, at superb Haitian Restaurant /KOMBIT!/
> 279 Flatbush Ave, Brooklyn
> 5:30PM Saturday, Feb 6
> All welcome -- thanks for closing your laptop for an evening to talk
> about what a Kreyol E-Learning really means for those Haitian children
> who soon will be opening Theirs.
> RSVP to holt @ laptop.org with your party size, so I can adjust the
> growing reservation!
> Most important, thanks all for investing your life's greatest skills
> this year in creating a foundation for Haiti's Library of Alexandria
> for Education, which we invite you to do starting here:
> Later Carmina will preview a colorful web site to help facilitate
> community-organizing of quality Kreyol works to this end, in whatever
> form this "Peoples Library" takes.
> But one Book at a Time: /we here are intentionally starting
> translation with just 1 book, and a long horizon/. That is
> http://laptop.org/manual created by deeply dedicated OLPC/Sugar
> volunteers, and very soon to be translated to Kreyol for Haitian kids
> (aged 5 to 95) thanks to the coordination of some Heroic people in
> NYC's Haitian community especially. So these exact same 5-year olds
> might remember their little community guide to a more
> creative-collaborative 21st century, if not the elders who wrote it
> back in 2010 -- when these kids turn 95 too. No matter how high the
> oceans in that year when that next (22nd) century quickly arrives...
