Why CMU Project Rwanda?

Last year, the experience was totally amazing. It was great to see the developments in Rwanda and the people were very warm and welcoming. I really enjoyed working with the Pittsburgh group there and it was a great eye-opener for me to community service. In particular, the smiles on the kids’ faces while we were there was the most satisfying experience. I believe this project must continue and we must help out the great people at One Laptop Per Child, who have come this far and have done a great job in bringing education to the nation. Last but not least, I really think of it as a great way to share the knowledge that we are privileged to have gained. Not everyone is fortunate enough to learn in good schools and having had that opportunity, I think I must share the knowledge that I have gained. As Nicholas Negroponte has said, this is not a laptop project, it is an education project.
