Kagame launches One Laptop per Child
NYARUGENGE - President Paul Kagame has said that enabling all primary school children to own computers was the government’s ultimate goal. This was during the official launch of the One Laptop per Child (OLPC) initiative at Jali Club yesterday. “Our goal is to continue finding means and ways to provide all primary school children in Rwanda with this important learning tool,” Kagame said, adding that various schemes, including encouraging parents to participate in buying computers for their children, would be used.
