One Laptop per Child Rwanda

Share

One Laptop per Child Rwanda (OLPC-Rwanda) is the only secondary international headquarters of One Laptop per Child (OLPC) in the world. OLPC’s mission is to empower the world’s poorest children through education by providing each child with a rugged, low-cost, low-power, connected laptop—the XO laptop–to evoke collaborative, joyful, and self-empowered learning. OLPC-Rwanda aims helps to support this broader mission but, more specially, to work on improving the educational conditions of teachers, children, schools and communities in Rwanda through the use of the XO. To achieve this objective we advise the Rwandan government on the deployment of XO laptops throughout the country. We also work hand in hand with other organizations interested in improving the quality of education and community development.
