Rasha Hussein writes on the TEDx Ramallah blog about her journey with OLPC and PaleXO over the past year in Ramallah, and how she was welcomed to the group by Noura Salhi and found friends and collaborators, and inspiration to join a new startup (Bazinga) with others from that group.
I learned the true meaning of voluntary work, and I felt awesome about what I do. It’s been a year now, and it was the best year of my life!
Kudos to her for sharing this experience. For more about the Bazinga technology hub, you can also follow them on twitter.
If you have been involved with an olpc project in your community, let us know what it was like — we would love to hear from you.
