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.
