XO: The Children's Machine

The One Laptop per Child association develops a low-cost laptop—the "XO Laptop"—to revolutionize how we educate the world's children. Our mission is "to provide educational opportunities for the world's poorest children by providing each child with a rugged, low-cost, low-power, connected laptop with content and software designed for collaborative, joyful, self-empowered learning."

Read more recent news, follow our deployments, or read about sugar 0.86 and our upcoming XO 1.5 laptop release. If you want to suggest or start a new project, or get hardware to work with, you can submit a project proposal directly.

Get Involved

This wiki contains project pages describing work and ideas related to OLPC. Be bold - create new pages for your own projects, or learn how to get involved with those already in progress. You can also ask other community members about ways to contribute.

See our latest news including our newly overhauled Contributors Program, offering free XO Laptop loans and community mentoring to volunteers worldwide who pay it forward.


There are overview pages dedicated to hardware, software, education and content. The XO's iconic software interface, Sugar, has its own human interface guidelines, here and on the Sugar Labs wiki. There are also discussion pages on issues of deployment and country-specific discussions.

OLPC is designed around five core principlesChild Ownership, Low Ages, Saturation, Connection, and Free and Open Source tools, and each of these have their own portal sections as well.
