Why OLPC needs more support from all partners
Posted by: Susan Einhorn
When, in 2007 the Government of Rwanda, through the One Laptop per Child Programme (OLPC), chose to distribute laptops to all children in primary schools across the country, some thought that this was just a dream that will never come to fruition.

Fast-forward, nearly a decade after this initiative was rolled out, at least two schools in every administrative sector in every corner of the country, has these laptops deployed, and children are enjoying this privilege.

Current statistics show that over 970 schools are beneficiary to the programme where more than 275,000 laptops have been deployed, which put Rwanda in the top position in Africa in as regards deployment of these machines, and only third globally after Uruguay and Peru.
