Our Dublin, Ohio Church's Global Mission group is considering a pilot project whereby we obtain donated corporate laptops, load Ubuntu and Open Office onto the laptops, and ship them to a school in Nicaragua.

We are currently supporting young Americans who have gone there to teach english to students and work with abused women and children (go to http://nicaraguanfootprints.blogspot.com/ to learn more about their efforts) . This is NOT a missionary effort, but an humanitarian one.

We have many obstacles to overcome both legal (import restrictions/requirements) as well as technical.

If any of you would like to assist us is in addressing technical issues as well as configuring donated laptops please send me an email at:
