Programa Mi Compu.MX (Gobierno de la República)

Following in the footsteps of many other nations around the globe, Mexico is giving simple free laptop computers to some elementary school students.

President Enrique Pena Nieto traveled to Tabasco state to inaugurate the program, which in its first phase will see some 240,000 kids in Tabasco, Colima and Sonora states get the computers.

“It is a computer that will accompany you in fifth and sixth grades, and you can take it home, use it all the time, at home, at school, and when you complete your primary education, it is another tool to accompany you in your training,” Pena Nieto told students in Tabasco.

Mexico falls fairly low in rankings of computer usage and internet connection.
