Robin Taylor of Geekcorps (http://www.geekcorps.org/) asked me to  
spread this notice around:

> As part of a new Geekcorp program in Lebanon, Ian Howard, former  
> Geekcorps Mali program coordinator and contributor to the recently  
> released book Wireless Networking in the Developing World (http:// 
> adaptic.ca/wndw/), is developing a plan for establishing wireless  
> connectivity in 34 rural areas of Lebanon. We are looking for a  
> volunteer to execute his plan. The volunteer will work with Ian  
> some of the time, but mostly he or she will be responsible for  
> independent implementation. For that reason, extensive hands-on  
> experience with outdoor wireless networks (e.g., for an ISP or a  
> community network) is a minimum requirement. Ideally, the volunteer  
> would have experience with wireless in developing countries. The  
> assignment is for six to eight weeks, starting in May.

Geekcorps pays for travel, accommodation, insurance and a stipend.
