Dominican Republic

Welcome to our regional site to build awareness for the OLPC program.  OLPC, is the acronym for One Laptop Per Child and the name of a great program with an inspirational mission!  Please visit the website to learn more.  What you will find is a great story of Nicholas Negroponte the  Chairman and Founder of the organization with a focused mission:

“We aim to provide each child with a rugged, low-cost, low-power, connected laptop. To this end, we have designed hardware, content and software for collaborative, joyful, and self-empowered learning. 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.

Here are a few ways that you can help!

  1. Donate your time to help us spread the word.
  2. Donate your time to help us support the development of the local program.
  3. Donate a laptop for $199 to a deserving student. Take action!
