This user is a contributor to the OLPC Children's Dictionary.

WiktionaryZ is proud to support the OLPC or One Laptop Per Child project. This project intends to innovate education by bringing laptops to kids in countries like Nigeria and Brazil. Huge amounts of computers will be distributed to kids. These computers are exquisite, they are rugged, they are innovative and they will change things one way or another.

In education dictionaries are one of the resources that kids use when they are available. For many languages it is hard to find content. We are currently looking for people who can help us with Igbo, Yoruba, Hausa .. We already have people who can help us with other languages; at WiktionaryZ we have started with the 1000 basic words in English. These we want to expand with as many translations as possible both for the expressions and the definitions.

Sabine is doing the sterling work that we know of her by organizing byte sized packages; this way people help by adding small stitches making this a blanket of communal effort.

Thanks,
GerardM
