“Computer for every schoolchild” is a project, which started in 2020 spring as a citizens’ initiative in the time of the COVID19 pandemic when Estonian schools were closed and children begun to learn from distance.

The need increased and soon we started to make cooperation with the municipalities and the Ministry of Education and Research.

The project’s web is in Estonian: Igale koolilapsele arvuti
