One Laptop per Child is a non-profit organization offering an inexpensive laptop designed for children in developing countries.
The initiative aims to provide each child with a rugged, low-cost, low-power, connected laptop. They have designed hardware, content and software for collaborative, joyful, and self-empowered learning. With access to this type of tool, children are engaged in their own education, and learn, share, and create together.
And Rwanda has validated the initiative by printing it on their currency. Roughly 2 million children and teachers in Latin America are currently part of an OLPC project, with another 500,000 in Africa and the rest of the world. The largest national partners include Uruguay (the first major country in the world to provide every elementary school child with a laptop), Peru (largest deployment, involving over 8,300 schools), Argentina, Mexico, and Rwanda.
