We have a situation like that here in Chile, but we are participating in 
many events, and
this year we're part of the organization of the biggest Linux related 
event in Chile,
Encuentro Linux, in this event there will be more than 5 Universities 
participating and
also many communities, including the Debian's and Ubuntu's.

In 2008 event we represented Fedora, by giving a speech about Fedora, we 
made T-Shirts
and gave DVD's to the public. We haven't participated here much, in part 
because of the
work we're doing for the upcoming event.

So I also think each country should try to make a self cleaning, as some 
Ambassadors don't
speek English well enough to actively participate in this list and other 
projects, but are a great
contribution to their own country.
