“I Miss The OLPC”

Gizmodo’s Andrew Liszewski has written about the OLPC XO-1.

With roughly three million OLPC XO laptops shipped to children since we began, we are glad to have achieved change.

Sugar learning software is still available from OLPC on our laptops, or from Sugar Labs on anyone else’s laptops. Some of the Sugar software is available for tablets and phones, and a new Music Blocks Programming Language is published.

Sugar Labs participated in Google Summer of Code this year, and is preparing now for Google Code-In.

Children are still without food, water, safety, parents, education, books, devices, and connectivity. There’s still work to be done.

Let’s do it!

“Education Transforms Lives”

Education is a basic human right and it is at the core of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, according to the UN chief, as the world celebrated the International Day of Education on January 24, 2019.

Education transforms lives”, United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres said, recounting his personal story of teaching in “the slums of Lisbon” where he saw first-hand that “education is an engine for poverty eradication and a force for peace”.

Education is the foundation upon which all of the other development goals are based. It is critical that every child has an equal opportunity for a quality education. Read more about the UN Secretary-General’s remarks and other world leaders celebrating the International Day of Education HERE.
