About six months ago we donated a couple of PCs to the 
Out-of-School-Care centre for one of our kids schools, pre-configured 
with EduBuntu and selected games. Our kids show the other kids how to 
play the various educational games and also how to play Battle for 
Wesnoth which is quite a bit hit for them. They also show the other kids 
how to use Ubuntu.

OOSC are happy, they have two PCs that they didn't have before, no 
ongoing costs other than power and they have us to support them if the 
wheels fall off somehow.
