There are roughly 2.5 million XOs in the field as of January, 2012. The information below represents the number of XOs delivered, shipped or ordered for each country or region. Not all XOs are currently in schools. Where possible, the status of each country and additional details on their software and deployment status is included at the bottom (and on the detailed deployment page). There is also a separate Pilots page for small pilots, which are often run independently from OLPC.

For an overview of deployment steps, see our deployment guide.

Maps

A few color-maps of the world showing the relative sizes of global deployments are available from our Maps page.

  • A global deployment map, updated in late 2011
  • http://olpcMAP.net (background) shows off individual projects, from a few XOs to large deployments, around the world, updated in 2012
    • Nepal has a village-level map of OLE projects from 2010
    • Australia has a school-level map showing where their 5,000 laptops are
    • Colombia has a school-level map from late 2010

Definitions

All information is tentative and subject to change without notice. For the purposes of this and related pages, we use the following definitions:

Pilot
Any project with less than 5,000 laptops in the same school or community with the goal of supplying an XO to every primary school age child.
Deployment
Any project with more than 5,000 laptops in the same region that has been launched with significant engagement by national educational leaders, with a goal of of supplying an XO to every primary school age child.

Preparing for your own deployment

Please check out the Deployment Guide for information about doing an XO deployment.

To document your OLPC deployment, please simply create a new wiki page and add the Deployment template text to your new page along with some details, and if possible technical details, education outcomes and photos of your success.

I can really edit this? Then I think anyone can put false information on this page -- Anonymous

Yes, this is true. Others watch for this, and as a community we expect the competing changes will approach truth. See how a public Wiki works. If you have corrections, please make them. This page is almost certainly out of date and incomplete. Use the Talk page for discussion in future. --Quozl 20:37, 13 November 2012 (UTC)

Guinea A team coached by SvenAERTS - former OLPC Europe - is working here and proposed 2012.03.14 the OLPC Educational Project to the new - November 2010 - first elected government after over 50 years of dictatorship, which is calling upon their team to help make good use of the couple of millions received from the international community. We met several ministers, including the prime minister. The minister of Education claimed he knows the project and saw the project during a state visit to another country, but the laptops were blue and he will receive them for free. We told him the laptops must have been from another project. We indicated potential resources and grant lines to obtain the XO's, but he insisted he would get the blue computers for free. We left it at that and went to the prime minister. 9 Months later, no blue computers have been received.

OLPC Iraq slowly adding classes every few months.
Distributed to computer labs around the country. Half of them deployed to date, half stuck in transit.
OLPC Italy Bernie is not entirely innocent of this deployment! They are using Italian as their language, I believe, despite issues raised on this page.
OLPC Kenya 1.2 million XO's, budget $600 million, as per http://www.one.org/us/2014/03/17/why-kenyas-school-laptops-program-is-not-the-answer/

Some Numbers may shed a light: The price for the XO laptop-x-tablet = ±€ 162, the portable PV panel = ±30€ and the average life-time = ±7 years. So, 1 XO laptop = 162 €+30€ PV panel/7 yrs alt= 27,51 €/yr => 2,29 €/month.student. 1.200.000 XO's x 190 €/XO = 228.000.000 €. Total budget mentioned 6.000.000 $ (2014) - 228.000.000 € = ± 222.000.000 assumingly for setting up a CO2e dpt in the Ministry of Education, teacher trainings, transforming the schoolbooks into eBooks, etc. A couple of years, the Kenyan gvt. provided hundreds of thousands of portable waterfilters to the families, thus putting a basic layer in society. It seems the Kenyan government now puts a second set of basic layers in society: the portable laptopschools bring at least a light-source in every house. The portable PV panel brings at least a basic power source in every household and can charge not only the XO, but also a radio, a gsm, ... and be a source of revenues.

With it all families and kids have epaper, something to write on, ALL the schoolbooks of a whole school career and room for some 800 more, with the wifi and mesh networking these show in an eLibrary shared with all the other kid's laptopschools so that if you have 100 kids there are 8000 books in e.g. how to meld iron and make tools, clean water with clay-pot filters, etc., it's a portable light, communication device, something to generate money with etc.
OLPC Lebanon Several hundred XOs delivered to refugee camp in Lebanon in September. Believe they were given out with build 656 but should be upgraded once Arabic support is confirmed better in 8.2. Another 1000 out of 3500 total given to a refugee camp in the Palestinian territories.
OLPC Madagascar three deployments ongoing.
OLPC Mexico Some ~10k were deployed, others were given by Mexico to Central American countries along with other aid. Limited data available on those deployments.

The start of a project in Nayarit for Indigenous Communities (Huicholes, Coras and Tepehuanos). Laptops given to the kids during August 2011. A great example of connectivity (Solar, electricity & Satelital Internet) in distant regions.
A project in San Luis Potosi lead by the Minister of Indigenous Education in the State. No information has been provided on the specific date when XO's were given to the kids in the State . Sugestions have been made by OLPC but limited response from the leaders. Teachers in the State have translated Sugar to their mother language Téenek.
The start of a 350K-student deployment in the state of Sonora.
OLPC Misc These include some smaller gives, and smaller individual projects in Africa, Asia and Latin America. In Oceania, these miscellaneous laptops are rolled into the total for OLPC Oceania; those received via the developers or contributors program are listed under OLPC small groups. Small projects that did not use international English keyboards have their own pages.
