To receive dootronics, a potential edoovillage needs to satisfy the following main requirements:
- Since Labdoo focuses on 'spreading education', an edoovillage must basically be a school or an educational center. In some occasions we can make exceptions and provide laptops to other organizations like hospitals or clinics, but most of the accepted edoovillages are actually schools.
- Edoovillages are asked to find travelers (dootrippers) willing to travel from any of the hubs to their location. This requirement is important to ensure the project is logistically viable. Labdoo is sending laptops to a very large number of schools, so having the schools themselves find the travelers helps speed up the implementation of the project and makes it feasible and sustainable. While Labdoo can also help find travelers, it is generally required that the school provides the first travelers on their own.
- The school must be capable of keeping laptops in a secure place to ensure they won't be damaged by harsh climate conditions (rain, dust, heat, ...) nor stolen.
- Once accepted, schools need to fill in the edoovillage request form and provide pictures of the school and the official school / NGO certificate in order to initiate the project.
