Approval and Shipment of testing laptop

May 13, 2010

When I first contacted OLPC to learn more about the best ways to get involved, I was advised to apply for a testing laptop first, which I did. This has now been approved and one laptop has been shipped to my colleague Soraya Hosni who will bring them to Ambrym this July.

Although people at the OLPC have been very friendly and helpful so far, I still don’t have an answer to how we will proceed further once we’re familiar with the technical details of the laptops. We would like to obtain anywhere from 50-500 laptops for local school children, but we won’t have the time and means to aquire the funds for this ourselves. I am looking forward to learn more about this process.

For the moment, however, I’ll be off to Ambrym, which means I won’t have an internet connection until the end of June, but I’ll be glad to read your comments once I’m back.
