Rightway International School and Ghanaian National Museum

This morning we left the hotel around 8AM to meet Daniel at the school in Tema where he is head master. The ride out to Tema took about an hour, much of the trip was on paved roads, but the last few miles were unpaved and the taxi had to take it a bit slow […]

Ubuntu image fix-ups, Ashesi and USAID contacts and luggage!

I’m going to Ghana to deploy Edubuntu!

On August 17th I received an email from Beth Lynn Eicher sharing that she would be going to Ghana to deploy Edubuntu desktops in schools under the umbrella of Computer Reach, a non-profit based out of Pittsburgh, PA. She asked if one of the other Partimus board members would be interested in going. Not yet […]
