NGF And OLPC-India Sign MOU
Next Generation Foundation and OLPC (One Laptop Per Child) India have joined hands to work together and launch educational programs in India which will allow access to quality education via technology to all kids from the underprivileged section of our society.
OLPC India is a non-governmental organization with a vision and mission of providing every child with a laptop 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.
This program was launched early in August and is in joint partnership with DSM Shakti school in Pune. Fourteen state of the art kid friendly laptops have been provided to primary school children, which will be used for educational purposes. Dedicated NGF volunteers will be working to ensure that the school teachers are provided adequate training to present the laptops to their school children.
The Next Generation Foundation is based in Shrewsbury, MA.
