Zambia is a historically peaceful country in the process of an economic development boom. According to the wikipedia, "In 2010, the World Bank named Zambia one of the world's fastest economically reformed countries.". It is a fertile ground for an OLPC program.

OLPC Zambia

  1. 2012 or 2013: a first OLPC class has been established with some 10 OLPC XO's.
