Participants to basecamp never had identical Tee-shirt. I was given this "r' message from a fellow basecamper. We had to design one for each other :-). Maybe this is symbolic for the next journey ahead.
Pictures of the trip to a future deployment site visit in Malaysia yesterday. Let us be enlightened with the maturing durian. It will fall to the ground when ripe to be eaten by wild boars and human alike! More photos from Adam: http://www.flickr.com/photos/tiayiti
Basecamp@Malacca start tomorrow with various teams and people making their way to the venue today/tonight.
Exactly two weeks from today "olpc basecamp 2.0: the next journey" will kick-off in Malacca, Malaysia. Volunteeers new and old will assemble in the heart of historical Malacca (Melaka), a place where the mix of various cultures east and west is very visible. Our hope is to bring attention to the need that real action is needed for change to educate the millions of children.
What can be accomplished will be dependent on participants themselves to self-organise for action.
