Mission Statement

Our mission is to increase educational opportunities for children in rural Lesotho through access to advanced technologies.

Laptops to Lesotho

  • distributes laptops to children in rural Lesotho,

  • trains the children and their teachers in the laptops’ use,

  • develops customized classroom lessons for core subjects,

  • provides school servers with "internet in a box,"

  • teaches the children critical-thinking and problem-solving skills using the laptops,

  • develops a community-based organization to provide local support and funding, and

  • deploys solar electricity to power the laptops for sites off the electrical grid.

Description

Primary school children in remote mountain villages in Lesotho, Africa, attend poor schools with few resources, unskilled teachers, and overcrowded classrooms. Laptops provide engaging personalized learning opportunities that improve their education, teach them to love learning, and increase their chances at a fuller, healthier life. Without laptops, they are destined for a hard life of subsistence living, with a high risk of contracting HIV/AIDS and drug-resistant tuberculosis.
