[school-discuss] Re: [IIEP] Software Freedom Day in Uganda
Ethiopia doesn't seem to be on the list, but you could always add it.
* South Africa
* Sierra Leone
In Goa, India, we are having the event on September 14 (at St Xavier's College) and on September 23/24 at the main computer exhibition in this small region. The reason is that September 10 runs straight into the Ganesh festival, devoted to the elephant-headed god of prosperity and widely observed in this region. So the precise date is less important than the SFD spirit, I guess! FN

During these presentations some Ugandan FOSS developers are going to show
