Learn the Net has made its content freely available in multiple languages to schools and universities all over the developing world since 1996. But without a way to access the Net, what good is instructional content?
Last year, I donated an HP laptop to the Manlapay National High School in the province of Cebu, Philippines. Although the laptop was less than a year old, it didn't have the computing power I need to do video editing. What to me was antiquated, has become a window on the world for the teachers and students at the high school. (I have to admit that I feel a bit guilty about foisting Windows Vista on them; hopefully, they will upgrade to Windows 7.)
One laptop is a start, but it only goes so far. Many more are needed. If you have a serviceable laptop and are interested in making a donation, email me so I can put you in touch with the organization that can facilitate the donation. The smiles on their faces say it all.
