Jobs

From OLPC

Jump to: navigation, search

OLPC proposes to give every child on Earth the means to be educated and ready to take a job upon graduation. But many countries are not creating jobs. Earth Treasury proposes to create a business curriculum for schools, and help them to link up and go into business together.

Ideas, please.
