By all means, keep OLPC and Sugar Labs on the loop on these activities
because the skills are totally transferable between both GNOME and
Sugar and they are very interested in sub-saharian Africa to produce
the software they run.
I can put you in contact if the regular mechanisms don't work out for

OLPC has personnel in Ghana but I don't know if they are already
involved in software development.
