Tsakane School where H4H will be visiting on Software Freedom Day – 20 September
A bunch of us from House4Hack are going to go to African School For Excellence (in Tsakane) on Software Freedom Day (20th September 2014) to introduce the school kids to some tech! Check out the details on the kick-ass website that Raoul and Toby put together:
