Prime Minister Dr Ralph Gonsalves will be looking at sources other than Portugal to provide laptops to allow for the government’s ‘One Laptop per Child’ initiative to continue.{{more}}

Gonsalves announced last week that because of the recent changes in the government of Portugal, that country was pre-occupied with many things and did not deliver on the second batch of computers as promised.

He said, as a result, he was seeking to make arrangements elsewhere to supply secondary school students with the computers as was promised.

Gonsalves did not reveal the new sources, however, saying that he will update the public on the matter in the future.

Between 2010 and 2011, Portugal and Venezuela donated 30,000 laptops which were distributed among the nation’s primary school students. (DD)
