Our mission is to provide a means for learning, self-expression and exploration to the nearly two billion children of the developing world with little or no access to education.

While children are by nature eager for knowledge, many countries have insufficient resources to devote to education—sometimes less than $20 a year per child. Imagine the potential that could be unlocked by giving every child in the world the tools they need to learn, no matter who they are, no matter where they live, no matter how little they may have.

If you'd like to donate an XO laptop today, simply click the link above. A donation of $200 will pay for and deliver one XO laptop to a child in a developing nation, $399 will pay for and deliver two XO laptops, and so on.

From November 12 - December 31, One Laptop Per Child will be offering a Give One Get One Program. For $399, you will be purchasing two XO laptops—one that will be sent to empower a child to learn in a developing nation, and one that will be sent to your child at home.

Once again, thank you. We sincerely hope you'll join our growing community of people working to create a connected, educated, enlightened future for the world's most essential resource—its children.

4. It is time to rethink this equation.
