"The Government will provide a one‑off grant of $11.7 million to One Laptop per Child (OLPC) Australia to support expansion of this initiative to primary school students in partnering regional and remote communities and low SES schools. This will help OLPC Australia to roll out additional custom‑built laptops to thousands of primary school students and to provide helpdesk and online support to participating schools."This is a massive investment and vote of confidence in the Australian charity's programme and approach, including their new education program. OLPC Australia CEO, Rangan Srikhanta, and his team are to be congratulated for their efforts on behalf of disadvantaged Australian children.
