One Laptop per Child
Gaza and Ramallah: Learning as a community UNRWA and OLPC have been working together in Gaza and the West Bank to implement community laptop programs this year. In many schools in such as this one in Ramallah, students use their XOs in class and out. These girls are on their way home. Lessons don't last all day, and children from the nearby towns often spend time outside reading and playing (and sometimes laughing) once school lets out. This year Ramallah held an XO Summer Camp to help hundreds of students learn how to use, repair, and teach with their laptops.
