One Laptop per Child: Volunteer Content / Software Development

OLPCOpportunity: One Laptop per Child Foundation Volunteer Service (Website)

The mission of the One Laptop per Child (OLPC) movement is to ensure that all school-aged children in the developing world are able to engage effectively with their own personal laptop, networked to the world, so that they, their families and their communities can openly learn and learn about learning.

The OLPC Association focuses on designing, manufacturing, and distributing laptops to children in lesser developed countries, initially concentrating on those governments that have made commitments for the funding and program support required to ensure that all of their children own and can effectively use a laptop.

How can one contribute to this movement?

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)
