1. Pay towards laptop for a child (Donations)
2. Customizing the materials, such as math and science projects, wiki-text books, dictionaries, geographies, histories, social studies, health and nutrition courses, for a particular region or group of children or for more general use throughout the OLPC world (Content OLPC)
3. Developing software applications, such as educational games, collaborative and archiving tools, artistic and video and graphic tools, not otherwise available on laptops for children that will enhance the general usefulness of laptops in every location (Developers Program OLPC)
4. Software and text related contributions (Getting Involved)
