One Laptop per Child to deliver over 2, 000 laptops to Haiti

DHL Express has partnered with the One Laptop per Child Foundation to deliver more than 2,000 laptops to Haiti for use by students and schools hit by the Haiti earthquake.


The One Laptop Per Child Foundation of Cambridge was established with the goal of bringing the world's children a low-price laptop. Its founder is Nicholas Negroponte, a Massachusetts Institute of Technology professor. The foundation offers its laptops for sale to governments of developing countries, which can then distribute the machines to poor school children.

Imagine each child in Haiti with a connected, rugged, hand-cranked or solar-powered laptop, to use at home and in school. This can provide a unique learning experience and make each Haitian child an agent of change.
