Hi all,

It is encouraging to see all this effort being put together towards a
great community in Africa. I am looking forward to the call - I
believe results of time and day come out when doodle closes.

@Marc - I would be interested to learn more about the "DIGITAL
INCLUSION & DISABILITY PROJECT". The Mozilla Foundation in conjunction
with a Kenyan organization did a pilot project duped "Digital
Literacy" last year here in Kenya.

regards,
Stephen (@uwanja)
