Planting the Seed for Education

Last year a small group of us planted a seed and deployed a 100 laptops to a small tribe in North Pokot, Kenya. There has been great news sent to us from our NGO, Pastor Edward from City Harvest Ministries. The Kenyan government wants to invest in more laptops to bring to the Kenyan community. The first deployment will be 500 laptops for Summer 2011- we will keep deploying until we hit a grand total of 7 million laptops. The Texas team will be meeting with the Prime Minister of Education, he will be flying in from Kenya to Texas. Currently, we are negotiating the deployment process with One Laptop Per Child and constructing  an Action plan to carry out this project.

    Amazing things are happening in Asilong.

  2. Hi Asilong School, We’d love to catch up with your OLPC XO classroom activities. We are working with the XO in other Kenyan locations. We are looking for setting up some cross training between schools. Please send us an email and contact information for the Asilong school and a US based Baylor contact would be great also.
