This summer OLPC has given Kasiisi Primary School the chance to engage in this project, providing 100 XO's to distribute to all of the Primary 6 students. These laptops will be stored at the school for charging each night, and during the day the kids will have access to the wealth of opportunities that the XO's offer including internet access, with the help of an accompanying server.
Three students are running this project; Ian Wrangham, Koojo Matthew, and Rwabuhinga Francis. Ian Wrangham is a Junior at Colorado College studying Environmental Science and Philosophy. Koojo Matthew is a Senior studying Business Administration at Kampala International University. Rwabuhinga Francis is a Freshman at Makerere University studying Environmental Planning.
This summer will provide a challenging project to all members involved, from the practitioners to the students.
Please stay posted as our summer evolves into what will hopefully be a groundbreaking movement to change the lives of the students in Primary Six at Kasiisi Primary School. Please stay updated on our progress, as lots of support will be crucial to the continued sustainability of this project.
