Since its inception in 2011, the project has provided over 100 laptops to select schools. This year 20 XO laptops were distributed to the Mission House Basic School in Gordon Town, to be complemented by on-going teacher, parent and student training. This initiative is sponsored by the Western Union Foundation, and implemented by MSBM and People's Action for Community Transformation (PACT), with Internet support provided by LIME.
