Young Innovators Malawi is a non-profit project being run by a volunteer team of local and ex-pat engineers and developers.
Running the competition, especially getting Raspberry Pi computers and equipment to give out to participating teams, costs money.
We could really do with your help! If you can help us with a donation, here is what your money could buy:
|Amount||What it will buy||What you will get|
|£1-£49||Part of a Raspberry Pi 'kit' / contribution towards prize fund.||Thank you on the contributor area of the website, email updates on the competition and results.|
|£50||A complete Raspberry Pi 'kit' for a team/school||Thank you on the supporter area of the website, plus information and updates on the specific team/school who receive your 'kit' and their results!|
|£51+||More than one Raspberry Pi 'kit' + additional equipment for the team/school + contribution towards prize fund.||Thank you on the partner area of the website, plus information and updates on the team/school who receive your 'kit' and their results!|
A raspberry Pi 'kit' includes: Model 'B' Raspberry Pi, with transparent case (£33, Farnell), plus 16GB SD Card (£11), plus a 5V USB power supply (£4.50) and a Composite/HDMI cable (£2). With a 16GB SD card, we can include educational content from the Khan Academy (using the offline KALite package, which will bring even more benefits to these kids and schools.
We are expecting schools to supply their own screen, keyboard and mouse, although in special cases we will also supply these components
If you're not in a position to donate money, we still appreciate your support - please sign up for the newsletter, and follow us on facebook
Please note, that this is a voluntary project we have started, we are not incorporated as a charity or an organisation. Your donation will go to my personal (John Cass) paypal acouunt where I will use it to pay for equipment. I will be purchasing Raspberry Pi computers and equipment from suppliers in the UK (as a consumer, so will pay VAT as normal) and will carry them back to Malawi in my personal luggage in July to avoid shipping costs.
