OLPC: Low-Cost Laptops Combat Afghan Indoctrination
Posted by: Justina Spencer
The founder and chairman of the One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) organisation Nicholas Negroponte believes low-cost notebooks will improve the educational prospects of Afghan children and combat “indoctrination and intolerance” in the troubled country.

In a joint project with the Afghan Ministry of Communication and Information Technology and local IT providers, OLPC has delivered 774 of its XO machines to students and teachers at the Zarghona Ana middle school in Kandahar. The latest consignment of laptops adds to the 3,700 machines which OLPC has distributed in Afghanistan so far.
