"The project to deliver One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) for
educational purpose in developing countries is doing great in
Paraguay. According to developer Bernie Innocenti, this success

software that other countries (or any other similar projects, see
for example the Teachermate or the italian JumpPC) could and should
"Stop: Bernie, what do you like in OLPC Paraguay?
"Bernie: The fact that, even though it's a little deployment it
contributed to the Sugar educational software much more than other
countries that have 100 times more resources. Since when we started
we've moved from passive dependency from others to full
participation to the international Sugar community, overcoming
language and cultural barriers.
"Stop: Is Paraguay the only country where this happened?
"Bernie: Not at all. Even Nepal, that is one of the poorest
countries in the world, made an excellent job with projects like
the online library Pustakalaya."
