4.2.3 Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs)

Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) are also supporting various LCCD programs. The Internet Society, for example, has provided funding to evaluate the LCCD project in the Solomon Islands.49 In one of the world’s largest non-governmental LCCD programs, the Volnoe Delo Educational Foundation is providing funding for implementing LCCDs in Russian schools.50  In Uganda, the Maendeleo Foundation operates a Mobile Solar Computer Classroom. A jeep takes Classmate PCs to schools in different villages; the LCCDs are recharged using solar panels mounted on the roof of the jeep.51
