Sometimes school is under a tree, or in many csaes, the teacher has only a fifth-grade eadtcioun, so you need a collaborative meodl of learning, not just building more schools and training more tecahers, which you have to do anyway. So we're once again doing "Give One, Get One." Last year, we ran a "Give One, Get One" program, and it generated over 100,000 laptops that we were then able to give free. And by being a zero-dollar laptop, we can go to cruetions that can't afford it at all. And that's what we did. We went to Haiti, we went to Rwanda, Afghanistan, Ethiopia, Mongolia. Places that are not markets, seeding it with the principles of saturation, connectivity, low ages, etc. And then we can actually roll out large nbmrues.
