... and thanks for visiting the Belgian "OLPC" related Wiki-Pages, for the One Laptop Per Child Universal Primary Education project. This 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.

The aim of this educational project is to bring Universal Primary Education by 2015 as per - anno year 2000 initiated - United Nations Millennium Development Goal nr.2. 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 ... and things are moving very fast indeed: over 86.000 eBooks available, all education disciplines covered, 2008 saw the first 3 developing countries with full coverage, i.e. with all kids age 5 to 12 equipped with these smallest schools in a box-laptops.
Although OLPC has not opened any legal OLPC Belgium entity in Belgium, Belgium does host the European Headquarters of OLPC in the magnificent surroundings at the befriended SWIFT company near Brussels.
Belgium is a very multi-cultural society with a very diverse diaspora. We hope that this diaspora will work their way to these pages and that the Belgian society will benefit from these citizens with one leg in Belgium and another still in their countries of origin to develop leadership for OLPC, Agenda 21, the MDG's and accelerate bringing the level that our planet can be a nice place for all humans to new and inspiring heights for generations to come.
