Kids on Computers Update


Back in 2013, I wrote a post with an end-of-year charity idea of donating to Kids on Computers (the Gittes Family Lab is now up in running in Oaxaca as a result of my own donation (at least one person follows the advice in my blog!)). The most important thing that happened as a result of that posting was that a reader, Javier Henderson, stepped up to contribute his decades of network engineering experience as well as considerable organizational talents.

This posting is to remind readers that Kids on Computers is a useful resource when you’re trying to find a use for an unneeded laptop (e.g., if Windows 8 has inspired you to buy a MacBook). Also that the group is heading to Morocco in October and you might want to take your computer (and Arabic language?) skills there with them.

  1. Philip: thank you for your donation. Seeing the kids’ excitement over getting the lab set up was certainly one of the highlights of the trip.

    The trip was a great experience, and all volunteers are always appreciated. I hope other readers also feel encouraged to join us on future trips.
