One Laptop Per Child

November 25, 2007

OX laptop One Laptop Per Child's "Give One Get One" program has been extended to December 31st. OLPC's goal is to supply laptops for children in developing countries who might not otherwise have access to an education. In pursuit of this goal, OPLC has developed the XO laptop, a child-geared machine designed to be "durable, brilliantly functional, energy-efficient, responsive, and fun."

According the OLPC's web site:

By giving children their very own connected XO laptop, we are giving them a window to the outside world, access to vast amounts of information, a way to connect with each other, and a springboard into their future. And we’re also helping these countries develop an essential resource—educated, empowered children.

Help bring the educational and economic potential of the Internet to those who need it most. For less than the cost of an iPod, you can donate an XO laptop "to a child in a developing nation and also receive one for the child in your life in recognition of your contribution." The "Give One Get One" program runs until December 31st.
