Nigerian school without power receives 300 laptops

As part of the One-Laptop-Per-Child programme (OLPC), 300 laptops were donated to a Nigerian School, one per pupil… But the problem is that the school has no electricity.

Although I think this program is a step forward for the development of such countries, there are indeed such primitive concerns that should be taken care of first.

  1. Hmmm, primitive concerns like what? I thought trying at least without waiting for every other need to fall into place was is also a step in the (proactive) direction.

  2. I’m not saying the primitive concerns should be taken care by this program, but 300 laptops in a school with no electricity are not that useful.

    I know that there are a lot of worse problems over there like food and stuff, but computers depend directly on electricity.

  3. These kids don’t need laptops. Money would be better spent on infrastructure, more power and water. When i went to school, i didn’t have laptops, all i had was pen, paper and a blackboard. If these people think that those kides need laptops to learn, they are just wasting money that could be better spent on other essentials.
