One Laptop per Child – Africa Internship Program

Students have played a pivotal role in every revolution, except learning.  That will change in 2009.  Through One Laptop per Child, student teams from around the world will each deploy 100 XO-laptops throughout Africa this summer. If you are an undergraduate or graduate student with an interest in education, technology or capacity building, our internship will provide you with unprecedented hands-on experience.

Student Teams will:
• travel to one of the 53 African countries of their choosing for 9-10 weeks
• participate in a 10-day orientation in Kigali, Rwanda at OLPC’s office
• receive a $10,000 (USD) team stipend
• deploy 100 XO laptops, including hardware and support
• collaborate with other teams as part of a life-long global network empowering a generation
• send 1 representative to MIT/OLPC’s all-expense paid summit from Oct 10th-12th 2009

About OLPCorps Africa
Our interns will be active members of our innovative 1 to 1 laptop-learning project and hold key roles as leaders in our grassroots movement.  OLPC summer internships, which are full-time commitments, begin June 8.
