The Mona School of Business and Management (MSBM) launched its third “One

Laptop Per Child” (OLPC) project on May 16, 2013. Since its inception in 2011, the

project has provided over 100 laptops to select schools. This year 20 XO laptops

were distributed to the Mission House Basic School in Gordon Town, to be

complemented by on-going teacher, parent and student training. This initiative is

sponsored by the Western Union Foundation, and implemented by MSBM and

People’s Action for Community Transformation (PACT), with Internet support

provided by LIME. The MSBM team was represented by Dr Maurice McNaughton –

Director, Centre of Excellence for IT Enabled Innovation, Craig Perue- Senior

Consultant at Centre of Excellence, and Maheshwar Boodraj- Manager, Information

Systems supported by interns Dean Bartley and Jodi-Ann Whitehorne and
