Like these, but European

 Looking for $2,000 stat to buy new chargers and power strips for the 150 kids in our class. Please donate via link on left OR send a check to the address on the left if you'd like your donation to be tax-deductible.
We cannot continue class without these chargers, so please donate ($5, $10, $100, $1000 or any other amount) today! 
Thank you so much!

Classes have stopped

Great news (sarcasm). Professor Miguel has emailed me to tell me that classes have recently stopped as there are too many broken chargers and power strips to be able to effectively hold class.


Two years in, the computers are holding up great but the chargers and power strips are terrible. Looking for solutions that can keep things going. All of the ones I can think of involve MONEY!

The teachers are moving forward with the Embassy of Taiwan slowly but surely. I feel like I need to go there to talk with the Embassy myself, as the Ministry of Education isn't really doing the job!

Stay tuned for the next episode...


Please click the button below to donate to STEP UP OLPC to support the São João school's computer program in São Tomé:

Donate $200 and you will be paying for a computer for at least FIVE very special children at São João (as estimated computer life is five years). Thanks so much!

Want your donation to be tax-deductible? Send a check to STeP UP with OLPC in the memo. Then mail it to:
