Our member office in Ireland alerted us to the Raspberry Pi. What thoughts do you have as to how we might use this with our field participants around the world?

Not sure what you are getting at. What do your field participants actually do?

Thanks for helping me clarify my query. Our non-profit is a leader in cultural exchange since 1932, promoting worldwide peace through understanding. We wondered if the Raspberry Pi would be valuable to our participants as they document and share their experiences abroad.

Well, in a way they are "secret agents"; but with the right technology in their hands, they'll be less secret, and more agents--of change :)

Look on the Raspberry Pi as a small computer, in size, capability and cost. It's tiny, and not as powerful as a desktop machine, but still capable of web browsing, email, office applications, media consumption, teaching etc, using very little power (solar we think is possible, as is battery power). If something like that would help your organisation, then yes!
