Community BBQ with OLPC Madagascar near Toronto on May 6


Resumen en español al final del artículo

Over the weekend I heard about an OLPC community BBQ which will take in Elora, Ontario near Toronto next Saturday, May 6. The event will bring together some of the key people working on OLPC projects in Madagascar and Haiti as well as members of the Canadian OLPC community.

Below I'm copying the full invitation which the ever-enthusiastic Laura de Reynal (Flickr, Twitter) of OLPC France's Nosy Komba project sent along:

Join us May 6th in Elora, Ontario, to share our vision about different small deployments, about our dreams for all those incredible OLPC startups in Jamaica, Haiti, Madagascar: they have a lot in common and share the same vision! Lets build it together! Yes you can contribute:

Sunday May 6th, 2PM
Elora, Ontario (1hr West of Toronto)

We will show how the 20 years of intensive work of Stéfano Palazzi which in Madagascar made the children the heart of building a community! YES! In Nosy Komba, Madagascar children are the chiefs of the village!

We will also share our difficulties and challenges, our dreams for the future and our vision for a better world!

Developing creativity with the XO and Sugar, reading, discovering, telling stories, understanding their environment and their village, learning photography, history, documentation, mathematics, media making, expressing themselves by learning and learning differently: Is there any thing more beautiful about education?

The Canadian OLPC community welcomes you and family, any internationally-minded educators you know, and students of all ages, to come learn what's really happening out there...please come share everyone's growing laptop/learning project experiences to build the Alearning Dream!

Alive! Awake! Alearn!

Spread the word and RSVP with [email protected] for address & transportation options.

Trust me, if Toronto wasn't a 10h flight away from Vienna I'd definitely join the fun! :-)

Resumen en español: El proximo sábado, 6 de Mayo, voluntarios trabajando en proyectos de OLPC en Haiti y Madagascar, se reunirán cerca de Toronto para una parrillada y compartir y discutir sus experiencias.
