A Worthy Cause

A charity in South Africa are attempting to build a solar-powered Raspberry Pi lab for schoolkids. To do this, they need to raise just over $10k. This sounds like a great project to get behind and could really make a difference in the lives of children who are deprived of the luxuries most of us can afford. If you’d like to find out more or would like to donate, visit the IndieGoGo page. You can read more about the project over at the Raspberry Pi Foundation.
