We have started a program called 'yuj' which aims at tapping academic
resources of the nation to serve the needs of NGOs / small organizations /
govt. and others.
Visit : http://www.yuj.in/ for the details.
One of our motives is to demonstrate and promote FOSS as cost-effective
and healthy methodology for development of the nation.
We installed Ubuntu and some educational software in "Mrityunjoy Night
School , Kandivili".
The people who have interests similar to us can join and help the team
achieve the goals.
