To ensure that every school child can carry out its academic activities in the classroom or at home with the support of new technologies, Canaima Plan will give them a computer. Canaima is a project focused on developing tools and production models based on free information technology, which aims to build national capacity, endogenous development, ownership and promotion of free knowledge in Venezuelan children.

The president, Hugo Chávez Frías, said that for this the Bolivarian Government works great strides to meet this challenge: "For every child who enters school we will donate a laptop. We will achieve this goal and the child will gradually learn to be responsible to take care about it, to use it with the help of the teacher in the school or parents at home".
