I will be giving a webinar on May 13th at 3:00pm GMT on OpenAid in Africa.
Registration link- https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/3622382096998495746
If you built or maintain a site for an organization operating in Africa let me know. It'd be great to both have OA members attend as well as here about websites using OpenAid. I have a few I plan on speaking about, but could definitely mention others as well.
The Africa Roundtable is an initiative of Kabissa to organize events to bring together people with a mutual interest in Africa for networking and to learn from featured speakers. Clayton Dewey will be leading a webinar on how OpenAid is helping organizations in Africa as well as a tour of its major features.Read more

I just installed the Open Aid distro, and attempted to load the 7.26 security update. I competed the initial install but did not activate any modules, I put the site in maintenance mode, deleted everything but the sites folder and copied in the 7.26 files sans the site folder. The site came up but it wasn't OpenAid any more. Does anyone know what other files I need to save before I copy in the 7.26 files and folders?Read more
I am creating a site for a new non-profit group that raises funds to support indigenous art forms and the artists that produce them. I like the OpenAid features and I've installed it on Pantheon to evaluate.
Did any of that documentation ever get finished? I'd be glad to take a look at it.Read more

I'm setting up a new site using the OpenAid distribution, and I'm really excited about what it has to offer.
I'm curious if there is any documentation running around regarding OpenAid specific information. I'm fairly new to Drupal so it's possible there isn't any need for OpenAid documentation, but I feel I'm not understanding a few features, first off the "hero" statement. Secondly... where to I "register" or mention the name of my site to increase the count on # of sites using this distro?
thanks for any help!
I've just been trying out the Open Aid Distro - fantastic work.
I work a bit with the International Aid Transparency Initiative, which has developed the common standard for sharing information on aid and development projects (http://www.iatistandard.org). The standard covers various code lists, approaches for creating activity and organisation identifiers, and an XML schema for sharing data. The shared data is all accessible from http://www.iatiregistry.org and increasingly through third-party tools that read in the XML.Read more
