One Laptop Per Child

DHL has partnered up with One Laptop Per Child to deliver over 2,000 laptops to the children of disaster struck Haiti.

"The One Laptop Per Child Foundation of Cambridge was established with the goal of bringing the world's children a low-price laptop. Its founder is Nicholas Negroponte, a Massachusetts Institute of Technology professor. The foundation offers its laptops for sale to governments of developing countries, which can then distribute the machines to poor school children."

"Providing each child with a connected, rugged, hand-cranked or solar-powered laptop, to use at home and in school, provides a unique learning experience and makes each child an agent of change." Negroponte.
