Hackers For Charity didn't just appear out of the blue. It's been a
many-year process that began with Johnny and Jen Long's various trips
to Africa in 2006 through 2008. Over time, their passion for the
plight of the vulnerable in East Africa demanded that they either back
away from the work or embrace it fully. The decision was obvious: they
would take the next step in the path laid before them. That's why,
starting on June 15, 2009, Johnny, his wife and four children are
relocating to Jinja, Uganda for one year to partner with AOET. (via
