Bienvenue-Welcome

... and thanks for visiting the pages for OLPC related matters in Algeria. OLPC is the One Laptop Per Child Universal Primary Education project and largest educational project undertaken by Humanity ever. Supported by United Nations, OLPC is an "Open Commmunity" project, similar to the Wikipedia and Open Source Community projects, like Linux, OpenOffice, etc. and it is working along Agenda 21 and Millennium Development Goal nr.2: Bringing Universal Primary Education. To edit text on this page or add pages, log in and and "edit page / save page" button will appear.

The aim of this educational project is on one hand to bring Universal Primary Education by 2015 as - anno year 2000 initiated - United Nations Millennium Development Goal nr.2. On the other hand, OLPC's mission is to manage the open hard and software project, to bring forward the best possible laptop combination for education: the XO-XServer combination. For this and above approach, - and also a lot of lobbying by the right persons on the right places and time - the United Nations is a Partner in this Open Community project! It is the largest educational project undertaken by Humanity ever, and deemed by many as one of the most inspiring projects out there. Things are moving very fast indeed: 2008 saw the first 3 countries with full coverage, i.e. with all kids age 5 to 12 equipped with these smallest schools in a box-laptops and Australia is now following at fast pace too, over 86.000 eBooks available, all education disciplines covered, etc. etc..

Together with the RDC, Algeria are the two biggest countries of the whole of Africa: elle n'a pas moins de x pays voisin. Le pays partage ses frontières avec l’enclave de Cabinda (Angola) et la République du Congo à l’ouest, la République centrafricaine et le Soudan du Sud au nord, l’Ouganda, le Rwanda, le Burundi et la Tanzanie à l’est, la Zambie et l’Angola au sud2. Plusieurs centaines d’ethnies forment la population du pays. Quelques régions frontalières ont pas mal des ressources minières, surtout pour une population apauvrie. Gérer un tel pays s'avère pas evident, surtout dans ces régions. Plus: http://www.un.org/en/peacekeeping/missions/monusco

Beaucoup d'inhabitants cherchent fortune ailleurs. Le RDS therefore has a very very large diaspora. We hope that this diaspora will work their way to these pages, set-up, link-up their projects with OLPC, coordinate projects and that they can inspire many in their host countries to come along. It is so difficult in these host countries to develop additional value and hence make money. In many regions in the home country however it is so easy as everything is to be developed.

Also the societies from the host countries will benefit from the Algerian diaspora who has one leg in the host country and another still in their countries of origin. Maybe it will start by developing leadership for OLPC, but soon it will be accompanied by exporting technologies, know-how and experience from the host countries along Agenda 21, the MDG's and together you will be able to accelerate bringing the level of quality of life in Algeria to a level that will inspire others, existing generations and generations to come.

Algeria is one of the 18 partner countries of Belgian governmental cooperation were selected on the basis of their degree of poverty, aspects of good governance and Belgium’s potential for providing meaningful support. The precise criteria for selecting countries are set out in the law on international cooperation, which limits the maximum number of recipients to 18 partner countries.
