One Laptop At A Time
One Laptop Per Child folks asked me to pass this along. The organization has shipped more than 500,000 connected, solar-capable laptops to children in some of the poorest, most rural places on Earth.
Deployments are underway in dozens of countries, including Rwanda, Ethiopia, Mongolia, Cambodia, Afghanistan, Haiti, and Nepal.
These children learn, play, program, and have access to thousands of books in their language, as well as millions on the Internet.
One Laptop Per Child is asking people all over the world to give a laptop, or give and get a laptop, to transform the lives of children, and - one connected child at a time - change the world.
OLPC is a non-profit, humanitarian organization with a real story and success in the field.
