Need suggestions for cameras to be used by remote African kids

      As part of a Myth Project I wanted to get the kids' perspective on life and culture. I thought that best way might be to give the kids digital cameras to record everyday doings from their eye-level.
      I'm looking for suggestions for both cameras (probably would like to get at least 10) and other ideas anyone might have as to the best way to proceed.

These kids in the Ethiopian Konso tribe village of Busso gave me a hard time because I only spoke about 20 words of Konso. "But you are an adult," they kept saying. We all laughed at my ignorance. It's amazing how a laugh in a remote African village sounds exactly the same as a laugh in Sherwood, Oregon, USA.
