Congratulations, eKindling Philippines! December 24, 2010

Even though this big launch took place on Dec 6, 2010, I want to post some pictures, links and congratulate the team that was working so hard for a long time to make it happen! Thank you for dreaming big and making difference in the world!

EKindling project in Philippines is http://wiki.laptop.org/go/EKindling.

To all,

“We thought the best ideas happen in Manila. We thought things like these (the Education Kindling: OLPC program) only happen in a 1st class city where there are lots of money. To our great surprise, what we thought is only possible is already a reality in Lubang. I came here to see myself that it is true.” – Dep Ed Secretary Bro. Armin Luistro, FSC 7

Cheers,

    We need something like this in Africa, anywhere it can be made to work, and then across the rest of Africa, ASAP.
