What is our mission?

Sugar Labs® is a volunteer-driven member project of Software Freedom
Conservancy, a nonprofit corporation. Originally part of the One
Laptop Per Child project, Sugar Labs coordinates volunteers around the
world who are passionate about providing educational opportunities to
children through the Sugar Learning Platform. Sugar Labs® is supported
by donations and is seeking funding to accelerate development.

Sugar Labs produces, distributes, and supports the use of the Sugar
learning platform, a free software system that is freely available to
anyone who wants to use or extend it.

Claudia: Mission in the context of remote learning??? Small things we
can delivar... as oppose to being too ambitious to get anything done.

Claudia: periodic events... maybe every month an event??? Things that
are more scaffolded... respond to need.

Claudia: We mentor kids and get them to do something concrete.

Claudia: driven by something that is relevant... something we can commit to.

Walter: learning software and a learning community

What are our goals?
