The XO Computer
"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. "
This is an incredible initiative, getting a laptop into the hands of children
everywhere on the globe. Nicholas Negroponte Founder and Chairman of One Laptop Per Child is in Mlle Kiddie's book, the patron saint of computers & children for conceiving and implementing such a remarkable visionary project.
Mlle Kiddie will be buying a XO during a special two week period coming up, where by buying two computers, one will be sent to a child. Above is a picture of children using the XO in Cambodia!
She intends to use it in the Kiddiegram Cafe while developing her Planet Kiddie project to turn her on-line Kiddiegram report into many languages to support children's initiatives around the globe through her Kiddygram fund. Currently she is working on first turning the English version, into a non-profit by December 16th of 2009.
If you are a fan of the report, and have project managing skills, non-profit savvy or are a natural born connector and wish to help, contact her at the Cafe:
