Sugar Labs can greatly improve its effectiveness with only modest levels of funding for key developers, infrastructure, travel to meetings, and other such functions. A variety of funding opportunities exists. Here are some projects that have been funded elsewhere, where we would be natural grant recipients or partners.
- UNRWA and OLPC in Palestinian refugee camp schools
- UNDP funding of digitizing textbooks in Bangladesh
- Shuttleworth Foundation Fellowship for creating e-learning materials for South Africa
- WK Kellogg Foundation Educated Kids program
- Global microfinance movement, started by Prof. Muhammad Yunus
- Uruguay RFP for up to 1,000 e-learning resources
- Externally funded projects at FLOSS Manuals, particularly How to Bypass Internet Censorship (sesawe.net) and Introduction to the Command Line (FSF)
