Following on from my post about looking for mobile phones, I was asked to mention a few charities in the almost daily fluffy links. If you want more mentioned, add them to the comments.
Markham (you have a blog anymore?) recommends Camara.
Camara has three main activities:
1. We take in second-hand computers that have been discarded by Irish organizations, refurbish them and send them to schools and colleges in Africa.
2. We send out groups of volunteers to train African teachers in basic computer literacy and more specialised technology areas.
3. We produce computer training materials, and educational multimedia content in areas such as HIV/AIDS.
Primal Sneeze points to the Jack and Jill foundation who help sick children and collect mobile phones and ship them to Africa.
If you forked your worthy links into a separate category–preferably one with an RSS feed–we’ll push them out as audio promos for 22 podcasters worldwide.
