I have been endeavouring to start a Non Profit Group or organisation in Sydney Australia for some time, there are a few things happening and as I find people who can help and can get on board I have found no other distro that can not only run successfully on the machines donated, but also attract favour with those who use these re-employed machines, Many of which in my view are excellent every day work horses that can do the Facebook/word processing/email stuff, but also play high def video or even create something without a problem, even that would be resource heavy when a Windows App is used within Windows, on machine no more endowed than a p4 2ghz 1 gig ram or equivalent.

By the way, if anyone in the Sydney Australia region wants to get involved in the creation of a group such as this, let me know, it will hopefully become something that will bring about some employment and be a lot of fun for those at the grass roots of this venture..

I live in Sydney but I am not terribly IT savvy...I am not sure what you need, but if it involves installing LL on old machines, then I am up for it :)

Hi Alex.

What I need are people to help get this going, people who know how to set up and establish this sort of thing successfully.

Thanks

Hello!

I wish you every success in your efforts.

We have a ministry in our church that refurbishes computers for use by national pastors in India and other countries. From here on out, they will be going out powered by Linux Lite.

Additionally, some friends and I have formed a ministry called Orphans for Christ to help orphans in Russia and Kazakhstan. I just found out that we have been granted 501c(3) tax-exempt status, so we can now offer our contributors a tax exemption for their gifts.

We are doing a complete rewrite of our online presence at http://www.o4c.org, but the current website is still available...
