OLPC Laptops for indigenous Australian Children

Although Australia is a First World country, to our shame, many indigenous Australians, particularly those in remote communities, have far fewer choices and live a marginalized existence.

It is great to see that OLPC Australia has set a program to help indigenous Australian children and is apparently already making a difference.

Also great to see that they've lined up a major corporate sponsor, the Commonwealth Bank of Australia to support their work.

Stories like these make all those hours hacking away on AbiWord and Write worthwhile.
