XO: The Children's Machine


The One Laptop per Child association develops a low-cost laptop—the "XO Laptop"—to revolutionize how we educate the world's children. Our mission is "to provide educational opportunities for the world's poorest children by providing each child with a rugged, low-cost, low-power, connected laptop with content and software designed for collaborative, joyful, self-empowered learning."

Read more recent news, follow our deployments, or read about sugar 0.86 and our upcoming XO 1.5 laptop release. If you want to suggest or start a new project, or get hardware to work with, you can submit a project proposal directly.
