    Four years ago, I was proposing a similar idea. I'm just glad it's now real.

      Wow, this picture I took of Khaled and my team in the LEA Primary School Galadima, in Gwarimpa Estate's Phase-2 section (Abuja, Nigeria) still rocks. I miss the project, no thanks to my government's lack of enthusiasm for such a noble cause.

      Theres Dr. Christopher Onosode at the upper left-hand corner (wearing native kaftan with cap), looking at some paperwork on a desk. The two gentlemen sitting near the blackboard are members of the PTA Board. Others standing beside Khaled are teachers of the school. I was hanging out with the kids from the rear of the class...where I took this pic from.

      Wow, can it be you're actually the guy who took that photo? That's a great picture, because most people see the OLPC, but don't see how it's actually being used! Thanks for sharing it! :)

      Yes Inju, its the-one-and-only me who took those photos. Unfortunately, I had to pull them down from my temporary storage on Flickr when a dedicated file server was setup up by my company. But you can still view some stuff thats still out there via:
