One learning child. One connected child. One laptop at a time.
The mission of One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) is to empower the children of developing countries to learn by providing every school-age child with a laptop that is specially designed for children. Between Nov. 12th & 26th, OLPC is offering a Give-One-Get-One program in the US and Canada. During this time, you can donate the revolutionary XO laptop to a child in a developing nation, and also receive one for the child in your life in recognition of your contribution. For more information go to the OLPC website. The website gives details about their innovative software and hardware package. This is a collaborative project led by Nicholas Negroponte of the New Media lab at MIT.
