The OLPC Foundation Learning Team develops partnerships and designs programs to support education in least developed countries, conflict zones, and emergencies. Our mission is to understand how technology can support children’s education by collaborating with local NGOs, ministries of education, and international agencies. Developing programs with our local partners and their communities that address local needs and community aspirations for improving the quality of education is at the core of our work.
