I have come across this post on BlenderArtists.org about a blender school in india.

A truly inspiring story that deserves mention on BlenderNation!

Uriel Deveaud posted this story on BlenderArtists, it's telling his experience of teaching Blender & Gimp to 4-8th grade kids from the villages in India.

quoted from the article:

Our first practice course was Video editing, thru a film making workshop. This is a 2 weeks class for different grades, the students will produce a one shot movie and a collective short movie, the topic was poetry ! (last year, the topic was free). So we started with all process in order: poetry selection/script writing/storyboarding/shooting/editing/mastering
