In 2009, the EAC was awarded a grant from One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) that provided for a new classroom, electricity to the Vutkaka Junior School and 100 XO laptops for students in grades 4, 5 and 6. The laptops have become a part of the cirriculum and are being used daily in and outside the classroom. Learn more about the OLPC program at Vutakaka Junior School here.
