I just heard about Geekcorps (via sfwow mailing list). They describe themselves “as a non-profit moving at the speed of the Internet.”

“Geekcorps, a division of IESC, promotes economic growth in the developing world by sending highly skilled technology volunteers to teach communities how to use innovative and affordable information and communication technologies to solve development problems.”

I wish they had been around when I had summers off and lacked responsibilities that keep me at home. It sure seems like a fabulous way to see the world. I thought I would write about them in case any of YOU might like to volunteer :)
