I'd like to learn about charitable projects that use #FOSS to provide educational opportunities to people who would otherwise be locked out due to software purchase prices.

Can anyone put me onto projects like this they're aware of?

I'm particularly interested in programs teaching design and digital art skills. But any org that creates opportunity for people through accessible software is of great interest, especially in highly disadvantaged communities.

Boosts welcome.

There's a local laptop recycling group that takes donated laptops, repairs them, puts Linux on them (Mint maybe?) and then gives them away to kids that need them.

@float13 That's really cool! Do you know the name of the group?

Follow

@freedcreative @float13 Maybe this? They take donated notebooks, clean them, put some sort of linux on it (depending on the specs) and donate them to schools or other groups that need them
