I'm currently working in a cyber cafe in Cameroon, Africa. Desktop penetration is very low here, so I wish to create a grassroots organisation with my mates to promote ICT. Where can I find materials and people interested in the project "Promote Computer Literacy and Digital Literacy with Ubuntu"?


If you can provide transportation for the shipment FOB Portland, Oregon, you could apply for a grant from a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization, FreeGeek.Org. See http://www.freegeek.org/about/grants for details.


Due to Customs issues this would be very difficult to achieve from scratch.

Actually you need to find an African import company that can provide you with components (Motherborads, GPUs, RAM, HDD, Cases, .....). Mount machines and install/tweak ubuntu on them. Contact the Commerce Chamber in your city to get a list of any existing suppliers.

  • Thank's for the reply but after months of searching over the INTERNET without successful results i have decide to start with some basics workshops for the mass in BASICS internet <WITH GOOGLE PRODUCTS > hopping I CAN GET in touch with volunteers that can help us set a computer lab with LTSP UBUNTU. please if there are people interested about the project feel free to contact me.
