Default Questions about Edubuntu and Ubuntu in Arabic

I volunteer with the World Computer
Exchange.http://www.worldcomputerexchange.org and

Our nonprofit organization installs Ubuntu 10.04 and the
edubuntu-desktop package on computers that we refurbish and send to
classrooms in emerging countries

We are considering our first Arabic language installation and find we
have many questions.

1) How complete is the Arabic language packages for Ubuntu?
2) Does OpenOffice(LibreOffice) have Arabic language packages available
3) Do any of the games/educational packages in Edubuntu perform in
4) What practical advise can you pass on to a volunteer staff which is
largely non-Arabic speaking as they go about installation?

Your input is appreciated
