Have you ever been to the third world?
You are short sighted.
Not everyone in the third world lives at the absolute minimum. Quite a few people in the third world don't have the worry about their daily food and water a great deal, though they have to be crative and cautious on what they spent their little money on. However, for this people education is beyond their reach. It is too expensive. It is this kind of people the OLPC project is aiming at.
