My wife and I are NGO in Ghana, supporting communities and changing lives, Between the two of us, we have donated over 10 computers to one of the local elementary schools. We provide over 12 white erasable boards with erasable makers, school materials, health, and sanitary materials, clothing items, school uniforms, and desks. we need partners and support. This year we have already given money to provide two sets of uniforms to the less fortunate for next school year. We are also a registered non-profit organization here in the US. We are pleased and look forward to working together. This may be the ICE breaker. here is our website: hhttps://www.hopeinspiringmission.org
Hello Brite. I noticed you donated 10 computers to a local school. FYI. In case you are not familiar with Raspberry computers. Raspberry computers were designed and developed as VERY inexpensive computers, to be used by underfunded schools to get kids into computer technology. The computers are very low cost, well featured, and the operating system is free. One of the ways they cut costs is rather than having a hard drive, an SD card is used instead. I bought one to check out, and actually did some serious Python development with it. The cost is approximately (as of today) $119 for a Raspberry computer kit. I put it together in 15 minutes, added old mouse, TV display(HDMI input), and old keyboard. The TV display was just an older TV I had laying around that had an HDMI video input.
Here is the organization link https://www.raspberrypi.org/about/
I believe the Raspberry organization is non-profit (based in UK) and gives the design away. Then any company can make the little low cost computers without any engineering design cost. Again the operating system is free, as is much of the software.
Thanks for your service!
