One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) awarded for Vutakaka!



A team of graduate students, Breona, Emma and Cecila from the University of Washington, and Jen, Priyanka and Bryan from the New School, have been awarded a grant from One Laptop Per Child (OLPC)! Some of the team will participate in training in Rwanda with other groups that have been awarded this grant and then will depart for Takaungu with 100 laptops for the Vutakaka students! This is an amazing achievement and we are so grateful to be able to inroduce this new type of knowledge and skill to the VSJ students!

OLPC's mission is "to create educational opportunities for the world's poorest children by providing each child with a rugged, low-cost, low-power, connected laptop with content and software designed for collaborative, joyful, self-empowered learning. When children have access to this type of tool they get engaged in their own education. They learn, share, create, and collaborate. They become connected to each other, to the world and to a brighter future."

We will continue to update you as the program is designed and implemented! We hope to have the students contributing to this blog and possibly creating one of their own! In the meantime, please take a moment to learn more about the OLPC and the amazing work they are doing all over the world!

Congrats and thank you to team who has worked so hard on this grant and project!
