My friend Hilary, in Oakland, is looking for donations of OLPCs for a school in Tanzania.  If you can help, please see below:


WANTED:  OLPC  XO-1 laptops.  These machines were introduced through a
”Give One Get One” offer by One Laptop Per Child <www.laptop.org> a
few years ago.  Please check your closets to find these wonderful
learning tools now hiding there.  The XO is a potent learning tool
designed and built especially for children in developing countries,
especially those living in some of the most remote environments. It’s
about the size of a small textbook. It has built-in wireless and a
unique screen that is readable under direct sunlight for children who
go to school outdoors. It’s extremely durable, brilliantly functional,
energy-efficient, and fun. We are collecting these laptops for a new
school in a rural area of Tanzania
<http://www.aiscs.org/projects.php>. If you have no further need for
your machine, please contact AISCS  info at aiscs.org or call us:
510-273-9044 to donate it, even if you are not sure it still works.
