Phoenix Team says on their website’s homepage:

What’s our mission?

Our mission is to provide as many free and open source software(FOSS) to worldwide community as possible and we are working for it. Currently, we are working to develop such software and spread them along. The Game, BoomingBang will be our first official game/software ever. We are focusing mainly on Youth and Children.

In some poor or developing/less developed countries, where children and youth do not get advantage of emerging new technology, and available resources, we intend to provide services and software to them, free of cost. One Laptop Per Child Foundation is now working for providing $100 laptops to children of developing countries, and we are looking forward to help them by providing free software.

How has it evolved over time?

The Phoenix Team is a newborn organization which came into existence on January 18,2009 when President of Phoenix Team, Abhishek Indoria has announced it. Since then, we are actively working towards FOSS and Development for Youth, especially CHILDREN.

Phoenix-Team is currently searching for members, youth specially, who can contribute to them.

Phoenix-Team is working for the development of their software for the children machine , the XO Laptop. Phoenix-Team is currently active in porting all of its project to XO laptops.

While hardware requests and requirements are fulfilled by One Laptop Per Child Foundation -OLPC-, Phoenix-Team welcomes Donation,whether directly cash or by help in Any means.

The Phoenix-Team’s special members who have direct access to secure files are known as Phoenix-Squad members. Phoenix-Team haven’t disclosed any information on Phoenix-Squad yet!

Lets hope that they contribute to the children of the world, I hope so…and I hope that you must think so 🙂
