UPDATE: The Give One Get One program ended on 12/31/2008, however you can still donate a laptop to a child in a developing country through this link.
Most of the nearly two billion children in the world do not have access to adequate education. The XO laptop was created to address this problem. The mission of One Laptop per Child (OLPC) is to empower the children of developing countries to learn by providing one connected laptop to every school-age child. In order to accomplish this goal, we need people who want to help make education for the world’s children a priority, not a privilege. This laptop has built in wireless and a special screen that can easily be read in direct sunlight for children who attend school outside. It is durable, energy efficient, educational and fun.
There are two ways to give to this project. You can donate $199 and an XO laptop will be sent to a child in a developing country. Donate an XO Laptop through Amazon Alternatively, if you would like to purchase one of these learning laptops for your child, for $399 you will receive one XO laptop AND one XO will be donated to a child in need.
