#124 Project to popularize Fedora in rural Jharkhand
Closed: Fixed None Opened 5 years ago by mohanprakash.


== The Project ==
The idea of the project is to popularize Fedora in rural parts of Jharkhand, a state in India
= reason =
People are mostly using pirated OS due to ignorance about the open source Fedora and its superiority over the pirated OS that they have been using.

= recommendation =
A couple of events will be organised without asking for reimbursement. After a concrete understanding of possible expenses the reimbursement ticket can be created for future events. What possible support may be expected for media/travel/food of volunteers/banners in organising such events?

visited a village named Sidraul on the outskirts of Ranchi on 26 March 2014.
Organised a session on "Why should we use open source software" with special mention of Fedora Operating System. 26 people were present in the meeting. Three of us distributed 5 Fedora-20 DVDs and showed the installation in one system. The discussion lasted for about 2 hrs.
Expenses for this trip was about INR 800 (US$ 14 approx).
This is the first program in this project and we are doing a few more of these to be able to plan things better.

You can produce swag that you need yourself and request reimbursements for them. Please open a separate ticket as documented here: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Ambassadors/APAC/Reimbursement#Other

I am not yet an ambassador and I can not ask for reimbursements. Moreover I am not sure about how to contact other ambassadors. If you can make an exception and send me some swag as samples at least, so I may try producing them from my private funds till I become an ambassador and become entitled for reimbursements.

Hi mpduty,

Thanks for the awesome work! I think the comments on this thread answer your questions, if not please feel free to reach out again.

For the moment, I'll close this ticket and you can open a new one if you'd like to request support.
