Nain Selected For One Laptop Per Child Pilot Project

Students at Jens Haven Memorial will be better prepared for their futures with the launch of a new pilot project.

One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) is an initiative that distributes laptops to students for educational purposes.

Nain has been selected as a community where a pilot project will be held.

OLPC distributes laptops to students age six-twelve.

5, 000 laptops will be distributed to aboriginal communities across Canada.

The program comes through the Belinda Stronach Foundation.

Vale and the Bank of Montreal are supporters of the initiative.

OLPC has been a huge success in other countries around the world.
