DoudouLinux is an initiative from a community of parents to help children around the world achieve self-fulfillment, using the best information technology —far from the influence of large companies. In a world that is about to be entirely under the control of information technology, we want our children to perfectly understand, master these tools, and learn to use them advisedly. Read our manifesto to learn more about our motivations.

The Association DoudouLinux

The project DoudouLinux is supported by a non-profit organization named “Association DoudouLinux”, a French association “loi 1901” [1], whose goals are the following:

  • help the project become well-known around the world
  • develop non-alienating information technology for children
  • ensure long life for the project
  • provide a legal structure to federate organizations willing to support the project

The association currently relies mostly on donations and sponsoring for its funding, while the project itself mostly relies on the free time of contributors to move forward. A way to help the project if you cannot offer it free time and if you cannot make your own organization get involved either, consists in funding the association. You could buy DoudouLinux products or just make a donation to our association. The money or equipment will be used to:

  • setup and maintain our Internet infrastructure (web servers)
  • organize our participation through travel & lodging to related events
  • provide equipment (for events, for developers, testers, visual artists, etc.)
  • create goodies like DoudouLinux USB keys, cups, caps, shirts, etc.

We may also, later, decide to fund the work of some of the most active project contributors if we get enough funding. This way we would be able to go further and faster, to provide children with more and better tools, to finally better compete with TV, Internet, gaming consoles and children’s tablets –-a huge program! Read our page Where goes DoudouLinux? to discover a non-exhaustive list of ideas we would like to develop.

Donate by credit/debit card or Paypal

As of this writing, card payments are achieved by Paypal. You do not need to create a Paypal account to perform a single credit/debit card payment. Paypal transfer fees are somewhat equivalent to bank exchange fees [2]. You may prefer to make a bank transfer instead, unless you really want to pay by credit or debit card, or if you already have a Paypal account.
