In Feb 2011 I found a Volunteer request in my "Volunteer opportunity alert" from balacalara.org, to support this project in developing a website. As I run my own server in the net this was exactly what I was looking for so I contacted the founder and got involved.
We collect used computers, locally in Azerbaijan, prepare them with a self remixed linux operating-system and what we call EDUtainment content: educational and very entertaining software and donate them to orphanages, refugees and pre-primary schools for kids to learn while playing; learn while having FUN!
The whole project relies on volunteers from all over the world. For example a project manager from the US, a web-developer from Saudi Arabia, the founder from the Netherlands, me - the server admin - from Germany, a linux specialist from Serbia and a lot of volunteers from Azerbaijan doing the concrete work on collecting, installing and shipping the PCs.
It's amazing to volunteer in such an motivated group and getting things done.
