  This page is monitored by the OLPC team.

This is a wiki, or publicly editable website, about the One Laptop per Child association and its projects. The wiki focuses on children's education, access to networks of collaboration, and access to knowledge in every region, in the local langugae, and for every age range and subject matter.

Articles about regions or groups address how they are engaged in these issues, and what current resources and collaborations are available there. Articles about people and institutions address what they are working on in these areas. Articles about topics, libraries, and websites address what material is available about or from them for the many target audiences.
