Pelican Pi in Rwanda! – Hackers For Charity

Hon-Jean-Philbert-Nsengimana-connects-his-tablet-to-Pelican-Pi-by-WiFi-28-1

Hackers for Charity show their Pelican Pi, which is made from Adafruit products, to the Prime Minister of Rwanada:

The “Pelican Pi” idea is really, REALLY taking off thanks to Daniel and Lisa. Their latest demo was in Rwanda at the ICT4AG conference and the ICT4AG Hackathon. I find it ironic that Hackers for Charity was presenting vicariously through Daniel and Lisa all the way in Rwanda. And they rocked it.

There, they met with Hon Jean Philbert Nsengimana, who is the Rwandan Minister of Youth and ICT. Daniel spent a few moments showing the Minister the Pelican Pi, and Lisa captured some video footage that’s a must-see. At around 2:45, Daniel grabs the Minister by the elbow, and the Minister is quite annoyed (it seems) but after a while, he warms up and eventually pulls out his iPad to try out the Pelican. It was cool to see.
