I am researching topics for a film on poverty for a series called "WHY
POVERTY" - if successful we will get to make a 10 to 20 minute film
that will be seen by 250 million people around the world.
You can check out our work here http://www.greenrenaissance.co.za
For info on the STEPS project: http://www.whypoverty.net/#home
One of our ideas is to document a roll-out of the OLPC program - we
are based in South Africa and I've seen from your website that you are
working on this in Lesotho
If you are interested can you please let me know so that we can start

Thanks for your inquiry. I would be interested in discussing the
possibility of filming our project, but first you should know that we
are not an official OLPC project. Though we use their XO-1 laptops and
adhere to much of their philosophy, we are completely independent of
OLPC. We receive no funding and virtually no support from them.
If, in spite of that, you are still interested, please let me know.
