Adam Ferreira One Laptop Per Child Rwanda announced in January 2007 it would work with One Laptop per Child. In 2008, it received 10,000 XOs. In early 2010, the government purchased 65,000 XO laptops so that schools in every school district could begin receiving laptops for P4-P6 students. "We aim to provide a rugged, low-cost, low-power, connected laptop for the world's most isolated and poorest children. With access to this type of tool, children are engaged in their own education, and learn, share, and create together. They become connected to each other, to the world and to a brighter future."
