The project is aimed at improving education in a comprehensive fashion, by providing laptops with educational content to teachers and elementary students attending public schools all over the country, and private ones that receive subsidies from the State.

This is one of the cornerstones of a new, inclusive and democratic education model, and it is seen as critical to achieving technological independence, since the applications and the educational content it carries has been exclusively developed through open software by Venezuelan experts, and has been tailored to the interests and needs of its users.

To date, more than four million “Canaimita” laptops have been handed out free of charge to elementary students in public and semi-private schools across the country.

Recursos financieros asignados para implementar la medida:

From 2013 to 2016, the State invested US$ 600 million in this project, using funds from the regular national budget and supplemental appropriations.
