Hi Edmund, I have saved the Learning Kiosk idea to review. As a small NGO, we were a bit concerned that ideas added to the challenge are not proprietary. We welcome your comments.

Heidi commented on Community mapping to make a positive difference

GIS mapping might be an interesting technique to explore. It requires certain software, although I am sure you could find a partner to provide software and training. Mapping skills are highly marketable, so any of these GIS techniques, even if people are not trained in the software, would be valuable.

Here is a link to some general information on community mapping and GIS.

This is a wonderful concept. Do you mention GIS training anywhere? If appropriate, it would be a great vocational skill to teach in the program, as it is so highly marketable.
