Hello Gjavetski, and Welcome to the OLPC wiki!

I hope you enjoy browsing and want to stay. As a first step, you may wish to read our introduction.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask me at my talk page — I'm happy to help. Or, you can ask your question at the main talk page.

Good luck, and have fun. --Sj 13:01, 2 July 2010 (UTC)

Updating your work with more on OLPC projects in Afghanistan and region

Can you start adding details about OLPC work in the region?

  • OLPC Afghanistan
    • Keyboards designed for this audience
    • Our partners' work: Paiwastoon, AIMS, the MOE
  • OLPC Pakistan (small and older, but worth noting)

Other regional groups whose works should be covered:

  • The Aga Khan Foundation

Also, briefly:

See: Disassembly for 1.0 details. The main difference for this 1.5 is the keyboard, which comes out with the two screws under the battery sliders on the base.

Parallelizing data

Lists of global orgs

for when you get back to Afghanistan for a second pass: add the following for each of our countries: what major projects are run/sponsored by

  • WFP
  • WHO
  • UNDP
  • Red Cross/Red Crescent
  • the Catholic Church
  • World Vision (they publish stories from war-torn regions and related project data) - on the Mideast and Afghanistan
  • Save the Children (they're helping run the UN Education Cluster)
  • SOS Children's Villages
  • World Bank (and the Inter-American Development Bank, in LatAm)

Relevant data

List available data where easy to find; list but leave blank elsewhere.

  • Basic education stats (from the UNICEF state of the world's children report)
  • Census stats relating to children (cf. Wikipedia's country template & World Factbook data)
  • Government expenses and budgets
  • International aid investments (focused on education; break out by country/org where available)

Recent Gallup data on connectivity

Nice timeline

Don't forget to summarize and final work you hope to have in place or things you want to learn from groups here, while working on whitepapers. I'm sure Z. or S. could tell you more about their work if you are interested. --Sj talk 18:48, 6 August 2010 (UTC)
