Learning to Change the World : UNESCO estimates that 11 percent of primary school-age children - 72 million worldwide - are not enrolled in or attending school. Children who do attend may find themselves in schools that lack adequate space, facilities, or resources - impossible situations for learning. It is against this backdrop of profound need that ONe Laptop per Child (OLPC) emerged in 2005. The mission of the organization is to "empower the children of developing countries to learn." They created the first affordable netbook, specifically built to withstand harsh climates and the handling of young children. "Learning to Change the World" is the story of One Laptop per child - one that will resonate with entrepreneurs and social innovators in any field. The authors set out to tell the real story of their journey - both successes and failures.
