Asian Penguins – St Paul middle school Linux group giving computers to kids

Your feel good story today comes from the Asian Penguins in St Paul. Middle school teacher Stu Keroff started a Linux user group. Kid joined. They realized that some kids in the school didn’t have computer – so they started to refurbish them and deliver them to families in the district. They even installed them and gave parents a quick lesson on how to use it.

  1. Dear Ann,
    Thank you so much for sharing this. We believe our idea is a simple but powerful one. And we believe our idea can and should be taken elsewhere.
    Thanks again,

    Stu Keroff
    Asian Penguins Director
