Linux Journal covers
of the One Laptop Per Child "Change the World" program.
"The "Change the World" program, variously known as "Give a School"
and "Give 100, Give 1000," offered individuals and groups the opportunity
to donate one hundred or more laptops to children in the developing world,
and designate where they should be deployed. Through the program, those
with ties to particular areas — a sister organization in a developing
nation, for example — were given the opportunity to have their donation
directly affect children in that area. Morgan Collett, a developer at OLPC,
was among the first to report the news, and wrote that several hundred XOs
have already been deployed in South Africa through the program, with more
in the works.
