North American & International Training and Trading Organization.
NAITO is a not-for-profit organization aimed to make a difference in communication and training to enhance and support communities, government and individuals and their quest for a better future.
NAITO fundraises to support and implement its own actions, programs and retreats; as well as, raise funds for others actions that the board of directors may want to encourage; for example, UN resolutions in Education: One Laptop per Child.
We aim to provide each child with a rugged, low-cost, low-power, connected laptop. To this end, MIT Boston designed hardware, content and software for collaborative, joyful, and self-empowered learning. With access to this type of tool, children are engaged in their own education, and learn, share, and create together. They become connected to each other, to the world and to a brighter future.
NAITO is associated with United Nation's "One Laptop per child" project.
Worldwide over 2.4 million children and teachers have xo laptops, Australia has announced full deployment in every single school of the continent, so is Uruguay but also Peru and China, and so many others, sadly North America is behind. Help us to help our children!
What We Need & What You Get
XO Laptop can only be bought by the hundreds (100, 200, 300 etc)
100 XO Laptop cost US$25,000, in addition we need batteries chargers (100 solar and low energy charger) 1 network per community or school, and one week of training for teachers and kids of that community/school/ area.
The more we get the more we buy laptops and the more we reach our goal to full deployement in British Columbia, (to start with), our goal being full deployment to the rest of Canada and USA.
So the more we get the more we buy! it's that simple!
What do you get: read the perk below...
As the pace of change in the world increases dramatically, the urgency to prepare all children to be full citizens of the emerging world also increases dramatically. No one can predict the world our children will inherit. The best preparation for children is to develop the passion for learning and the ability to learn how to learn.
The root cause of the rapid change, digital technology, also provides a solution. When every child has a connected laptop, they have in their hands the key to full development and participation. Limits are erased as they can learn to work with others around the world, to access high-quality, modern materials, to engage their passions and develop their expertise.
What children lack is not capability, it is opportunity and resources. The tool with which to unlock their potential is the XO. Put this ultra-low-cost, powerful, rugged, low-power, ecological laptop in their hands and contribute to making a better world. In the first years of OLPC we have seen two million previously marginalized children learn, achieve and begin to transform their communities. We are working to provide this opportunity to millions more.
