- Thank you for your "60 million dollar" question. Currently we are involved in testing and refining the localized version of OLPC for Pakistani children. There more than 15 million children waiting in Pakistan for their OLPC - and it is upto the Ministry of Education, in Islamabad and the four Provincial education departments to deploy it in bulk out of their development funds /donors/ debt swapping program.
- We in OLPC will provide technical, pedagogical, and preparing of teachers for classroom integration.
- I hope this answers your question.

- How would our page on Pakistan differ from Wikipedia? Do we need to satisfy any requirements that linking to a regularly updated page would not cover? -- Seth 19:05, 24 August 2008 (UTC)
