Opis: Learning to Change the World - Neal Donahue, Jody Cornish, Walter Bender

There are thousands of social entrepreneurship programs in various stages of planning and implementation at any given time. For the most part, these programs start out small with the intention of "scaling up" based on trial and error. One Laptop per Child started out with a very ambitious mission - to provide more information and better education to the world's poor via an inexpensive laptop. Almost immediately this organization garnered attention - the ambition, the caliber of people working on the program and the initial success. This book tells not only the story of this lofty group of pioneers, but also puts the lessons into perspective for future social entrepreneurs - what it means to work in this environment, how to collaborate with educators, organizations, countries, administrators, businesses. Part narrative history of OLpC, part social entrepreneurship lessons and part futuristic look at attaining the education goals it set out, this book offers a real on the ground look at how this group brought together, business, educators, technology, non-profits, and entrepreneurs to help bring an education to the world's underprivileged. "Both the greatest opportunity for social entrepreneurs and the greatest obstacles to be overcome lie in the field of education. "Learning to Change the World" describes the challenges OLPC faced in working in countries where the educational system is most ineffective and entrenched. If our goal is to change the rules to ensure that the poor have a place in this world, the surest way to do so is by giving them the tools they need to help pave their own way. OLPC has been a pioneer in this attempt, and this book is a must read for those who would follow." - Muhammad Yunus, founder of Grameen Bank "This book is a must read for entrepreneurs who want to learn the complexities of bringing technology to poor children to improve their lives in real and sustainable ways.
