It's great to see the kind of work you're doing in Ghana. Do you
currently have a center or place where you have the Linux machines
available for people to visit and use? It would be useful if you could
build a small community where people can learn and help each other.
Givign talks on what is possible will also get those Windows users
interested if they see that they can do all kinds of things that they
can't currently do on Windows. Perhaps the Linux User Group howto will
also be of some use to you: http://tldp.org/HOWTO/User-Group-HOWTO.html

Keep well!
