LAFISE Group makes the important decision to contribute to the country’s education, thus creating The Zamora Terán Foundation in 2009, a non-profit organization aimed at implementing in Nicaragua, as pilot country in Central America, the “One Laptop Per Child” Educational Program.
Mindful of the fact that providing all the country’s elementary school children with their own computer as part of a comprehensive educational program is an ambitious endeavor, they recognize that the project needs to join efforts with other private companies, governments, governmental and nongovernmental organizations, friendly countries and individuals for building children’s future.
The Zamora Terán Foundation promotes and implements the “One Laptop Per Child” (OLPC) Educational Program, a program created by MIT University in the United States in 2005, which 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”.
The “One Laptop Per Child” Educational Program is an effective, low cost solution that allows providing future generations with the education needed to transcend the country’s social and economic barriers.
The Zamora Terán Foundation is committed to promote strong leadership, strategic planning, transparent and experienced management and the infrastructure needed for sustainability and success.
