re: "... identifying a trusted party at that end". There are local 
non-profit organizations that provide technology assistance and support to 
other non-profit organizations. They are based on the "circuit rider" model 
popular in the US, where technicians travel from site to site with their 
bag of tools, training materials, and general expertise in a range of 
services and solutions appropriate for the environment. Circuit Rider 
organizations are found in many of the larger population centers in the 
developing world and are an excellent resource for both identifying worthy 
recipient organizations and/or providing the onsite assistance for 
installation, training, and ongoing support of the donated hardware. Our 
organization does this in many cities in Asia, Africa, and Latin America. 
Perhaps a discussion with similar organizations might lead to a partnership 
to ensure that deliveries are not only completed in a timely manner, but 
that the follow up training and maintenance is done to ensure the success 
of the initial donation.
