Awesome Idea. Sounds right up our alley. I can help provide some support around the content end but someone else will need to drive the project.

Warm regards,

Worth checking out for the Chapter? And the Trust? Maybe both together?

"Datawind, the inventor of world's cheapest tablet computer UbiSlate
has joined hands with NASSCOM Foundation to help bridge the digital
divide in India.
Partnership focuses to announce a contest targeting the non-profit
network across India, wherein 10 of them will stand an opportunity to
win 20 Aakash tablets/UbiSlates each, to improve their operations and
programme implementation, said a press release.
The contest will open between December 2011 and January 2012.
How will the winning streak be decided? Each of the participating
organizations will have to showcase how best the UbiSlate will be used
for socio-economic challenges such as education, health and
NASSCOM Foundation definitely sees potential for the information and
communication technologies sector playing a crucial role in the
process of social change."

Thank you.
