Nicaragua is sharing its experience in the implementation of the Educational Program “One Laptop per Child” with communities in Rwanda, Africa, to strengthen the development of skills in the children of this country.
The alliance between the Fundación Zamora Terán and One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) has made it possible to replicate the model of implementation of Nicaragua in different parts of the world.
In Rwanda, the organizations Henny Kids and Children in Wilderness, develop an initiative to provide XO computers to schools in Zimbabwe and Zambia, two remote and rural areas.
For this project, 13 of these laptops will benefit Twabuka Elementary School in Zambia and the objective is to expand this benefit to every child in the 12 schools with which they work. At the beginning of April, 23 laptop computers were delivered to children in the schools of Ngamo in Zimbabwe and Desire Rwagaju, Representative of OLPC in Africa supported during three days the training of teachers for the implementation of the Educational Program.
