Community: Belgian Students Start Indian School Project

[ Thanks to Johan

In Belgium, a few students, including myself, from the
Mutlimedia- and Communication-Technologies department (MCT) at the
PIH High School are planning for an
open source project to help the less fortunate.

We are collecting PC’s from companies and private users. In
February, we’ll ship them to India and there we’ll install the
software and teach users there how to use the donated PCs.

For logical reasons (price, quality, licensing, hardware
requirements, and security), we’ll be using Linux.

Of course, a project like this needs a lot of support, and we
hope to receive some support from the open source comunity. We
still need a lot of materials and financial support, therefore we
have opened a PayPal account.
