OLPC in Europe: Give One Get One


Bookmark and Share

One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) project is spreading day by day in various parts in the world. When the project started a few years ago, many people thought that it may not be a good one. However, OLPC has achieved tremendous amount of success and many children in third world countries can now have a laptop. Now, OLPC has introduced Give One Get One system for European consumers. Under the scheme, people of 27 European countries can order to buy a laptop on the condition that they buy one and donate one. This is a good initiative and many people in Europe will surely enjoy the offer.

The plan to put the distinctive green and white XO laptops on sale in 27 European nations was revealed by OLPC founder Nicholas Negroponte in a speech to the World of Health IT Conference in Copenhagen.

When it goes on sale the XO laptop is expected to cost £268 (313 euros) and should be available in 27 EU nations as well as Switzerland, Russia and Turkey.

Many people in the world want to donate something for the poor people. I think that one of the best things they can do in this regard is that they can donate a laptop for a child living in a third world country.
