It has been more then six months since my last blog entry. Alot has happen over this period. The dLEAP initiative in Malaysia is growing in support. Towards the end of 2016, forty 50 XO4s were shipped by OLPC Asia to support the project. The local team collected the old and worn out XO1 and replaced them with this newer XO4 touch screen model. Each kid was given a bag and towel with a strong message that they were responsible to keep it clean and functioning.
A visit in Jan 10, 2017 confirmed that the children were indeed looking after their laptop.
In the next few months we hope more children will have access to their own XO, There are harder to reach children who lives deep in the jungle with their families. We hope this current group of children will become ambassadors to help their peers in different circumstances.
I have written an evaluation on the 3 years of dLEAP for documentations.
