About OLPC
You've got it right!

Our mission is to work as non profit open group to make classroom teaching more effective and fun. We develop open source software that is used across millions of children, teachers and volunteers across the globe. We aim to provide each child with a rugged, low-cost, low-power, connected laptop. To this end, we have 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.

OLPC Hack '13 New Delhi

We believe we all feel the same when it comes to learning and fun. We attempt to make these two aspects more effective and enjoyable. Through this hackathon we are not only collaborating OLPC and Sugar developers in India to work in more unified way to achieve OLPC's milestones, but also inviting interested ones to know more about OLPC, Sugar and help them get started on the beautiful mission. This is just a beginning...

Oh yeah, it's that good.
