Any nation’s most precious natural resource is its children. We believe the emerging world must leverage this resource by tapping into the children’s innate capacities to learn, share, and create on their own. Our answer to that challenge is the XO laptop, a children’s machine designed for “learning learning.”
The “One Laptop Per Child” initiative to offer technology and education to children in developing nations at a reduced price is FINALLY coming to fruition this fall. After three years of hype and setbacks and gains, the XO laptop will be released in November to the general public with the “Give 1 Get 1” program. For $400 you can own a piece of history, amazing technology, a nice little laptop for your child AND OLPC will send another laptop to another child somewhere in the world. It’s the season for giving, so let’s give.
