Google Donates $1.25Million To Mandela Archive [bbc.co.uk]
Google is to donate $1.25m (770,000) to a project that aims to create an archive of Nelson Mandela's life.

The Nelson Mandela Foundation Centre of Memory is digitising photographs, letters and other documents relating to the former South African president.

A similar project, chronicling the life of Archbishop Desmond Tutu, will also receive $1.25m.

The money will be used to help collect documents and to ensure that poor, rural communities can access them.
