Well, if you want to realize your dream, here's some practical things you might
want to look at to get you started:
1) Help with translations within Ubuntu/Edubuntu. Not all applications have
reached 100% translation yet, and doing the translation's fairly easy. Just
get yourself a launchpad account, and start submitting strings (I think the
"translate this application" link is still there for a lot of apps).
2) If you're looking to help with content, there's a few things you could do:
* The Edubuntu handbook could always use a makeover
* I don't know much about moodle, but maybe you could provide free content
(chem, geo, etc) for Moodle that people could use.
* Work on cleaning up/editing/translating pages on the wiki.

I know the U.N. has student programs, maybe contact them.

Much of this is already implemented in Lauchpad.

Moodle seems to be what you're looking for here.
