"Your humanitarian social network to help bring education around the world"
|LABDOO is a humanitarian social network joined by people around the world who want to make our planet a better place by providing those in underdeveloped regions a chance at a better education. The goal of the social network is to send unused laptops, ebook readers, tablet-PCs and any device that can be loaded with education software to needy schools around the world using colaboration and without incurring any economic or environmental costs. There is a very large number of stories taking place within the Labdoo social network and this newsletter only captures a few of them. If your story does not show up and you feel that it is worth spreading, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and the editor of this newsletter will make any possible effort to include it in the next issue -- The Labdoo Team.|
With new school projects created in Bosnia, Congo and Tanzania, the Labdoo Project has now reached 500 schools! Thank you everyone for making it a reality. www.labdoo.org. Got and unused laptop or tablet? join Labdoo now and help spread education. #labdoo #worldeducation #recyclecomputers.
Labdoo is growing in the area of Switzerland, with a good number of hubs being created around the country these past weeks. And many schools are now benefiting from the great work these hubs are doing. Check out just as one example this school from Togo, who recently received laptops loaded with education software... very cool work!
With more than 20 active hubs in Germany, listing all the schools that are benefiting from their actions would make this newsletter issue humongous! Check out this school in Kenia which recently received laptops from labdooers in Germany: https://www.labdoo.org/edoovillage?e=1637
Labdoo currently supports a good number of languages, but the more languages we support, the more education we can spread around the world.
This is a special story that we think is worth sharing... Anna's brother, Enric, was a young engineer. Together with two of his university classmates he had started a company on renewable energies and he was very involved in social and earth green projects. Unfortunately, Enric passed away after bravely fighting cancer. Anna contacted Labdoo to donate Enric's laptop because "he would have loved that his laptop is used to help bring education to children". Thanks to Labdoo hubs in Barcelona and to dootrippers Raimon and Marta that went to Nepal just a few days ago, his laptop is now being used at a school in Nepal. Enric's laptop traveled together with two brand new tablets donated by another family in Catalonia, which were then all collected by teacher Saroj in Kathmandu. Now these tablets and laptops are all being used in the school as book reading and educational devices.
We started with an idea... that together in collaboration
This summer, a few of our members traveled to Taiwan to teach English to the students of a summer camp. The trio Johnathan Kuo, Jessica Kuo, and Samantha Lee did a wonderful job representing Labdoo this year.

Laptops Hubs in California Taking Action to Help Bring Education Laptops to Needy Schools
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.” - Margaret Mead
To help bring even more laptops to needy schools, we need to make our tasks as efficient as possible. We just added a new feature to the Labdoo.org Social Network that will make the donation of your unused laptops and tablets to schools around the world even simpler. All it takes is two steps: (1) tag and (2) pick me up. Check out the Labdoo wiki to learn how this new feature works: https://www.labdoo.org/content/pick-me
