The two behind PCOLPC is Charles Chen and Willie Pertubal. Classmates at the Ateneo Graduate School of Business, (AGSB) back in 1990's, the two saw the need of improving the level of education in the Philippines. Charles is based in Sydney, Australia and specialises in cross border trade and investments between Australia and the Philippines. Willie is based in Antipolo city, Philippines and is veterinarian and is an active social leader in his local community. Both of them saw in Nicholas Negroponte's OLPC program an opportunity to give public school students in the Philippines (initially and later the rest of ASEAN) the benefit of computer aided learning so common in more developed countries. And the journey has just started.
