This article is to present organizational, financial and other information about OLPC Korea. As OLPC is non-profit project, also is OLPC Korea. So its size and the number of employees are quite small and few, maybe 1/10 of NGOs pursuing similar educational projects in Korea such as Korean Associations for Science Education etc.
It's located in Yeraedong, Seoguipo, Jejudo, using about 100 square meters' office space and a grand ocean and forest around it. At the date of 10 July, 2007. There is no full time employee, but 3 volunteers led by Do Young-Min user:php5.
Because the office used by XO Korea is owned by the Jejudo local government, there is no rental (lent) payment at all, and other operational expenses also are quite little.
I expect there will be 8~15 people working in this office as full-time employment, if budget allows: the salary level of those employees will be similar to that of governmental employees of similar ages.
Of course, all the major projects are established or confirmed at this office; all regional affairs are coordinated by it also.
Another important aspect is the fact that the role of OLPC Korea is just to coordinate, relay, moderate, and/or monitor the activities of all XO users, not to control, direct, instruct, and/or require them to do something.
