A 70 JD Laptop Per Child
I read in the news today about the Jordan Post Company initiative offering affordable desktops and laptops computers for a JD300 - JD500. Applications to purchase the laptops starts today and it needs Bank approval for funding. Not sure what's the specifications of the laptop, but it looks that there are some guildlines. Good news, but 300 JD in not that cheap.
Alas, we can get a better deal at A $100 laptop per child initiative, thats if you need an educational laptop.
" $100 laptop per child, is an education project, not a laptop project. To
provide children around the world with new opportunities to explore, experiment
and express themselves.”
