What is this about?
The One Laptop per Child Foundation is an education project whose goal is to provide every child with a powerful tool for learning. Their mission statement below best sums it up:
To create educational opportunities for the world’s poorest children by providing each child with a rugged, low-cost, low-power, connected laptop with content and software designed for collaborative, joyful, self-empowered learning. When children have access to this type of tool they get engaged in their own education. They learn, share, create, and collaborate. They become connected to each other, to the world and to a brighter future.
I officially began a project to donate laptops to children who need it in several developing countries. I look forward to participating in many different ways, and with the help of friends and fellow co-workers we plan to accomplish the following:
- Donate 20 XO Laptops
- Create a Community Repair Center
- Help with setup and use of the XO Laptop
- Help with Support
- Spread the word about this remarkable learning tool
