Re: [school-discuss] FOSS Digital Literracy Camapaign in Cameroon,Africa

Dear Marc,

Great initiative I must say. Though I would be interested, I don't live in Cameroon at the moment unfortunately. I don't know if you've heard of FOSSFA (Free and OpenSource Software Foundation for Africa)( http://fossfa.net/ )? I will forward your request to the mailing list with you in copy and you will definitely get help with such a project from there. 

I wish you luck with this great project bro.

Good Morning to everyone
Am a young man managing a cyber cafe in Bamenda, Cameroon In AFRICA.
I discovered a Linux some few years back with the help of a friend of
mine living in the UK.
I wish to launch a Digital Literacy campaign with FOSS to show to
people in my community  that Computers is not as difficult to use as
they may think .
Is true after this i will like to do launch another program to target
School Drop out and unemployed adults to train them on basics Linux
and other technical parts so that they can consider a career in
Computing with Foss and hence go out of the cycle of Poverty.
I don't consider my self as much knowledgeable about this subject but
i will like to collaborate with people interested and follow
curriculum that is proven and tested.
For the first phase i intent to start as soon as possible and am going
to make a radio  announcement
The propose curriculum is and we are going to target people who have
never touch a computer we are going to introduce them to using
computers DEBIAN or peppermint OS (For the moment we already have 8
computers running Peppermint, unfortunately i was not able to find
documentation on the web base that teach " Using Computer & Managing
files base on LXDE")
If they are people interested let me know because as i said this is
just the first stage after am going to launch another one a bit
technical base with LINUX ESSENTIAL .
Am looking forward while waiting for the response of people interested.
Here's a link on my Campaign.
