The project has been underway for over two years, and a number of technologists and teachers have travelled to the Seychelles to provide instruction in the use of the equipment. In all, over 500 computers have been set up in the islands’ schools, all of them equipped with Icelandic educational software.

Among corporate and institutional sponsors of the project are Skýrr, Opin Kerfi, Glitnir, Síminn, Microsoft, UNESCO, the National Centre for Educational Materials (Námsgagnastofnun), Kaupthing, Eimskip, the City of Reykjavík, the City of Hafnarfjördur, Nýherji, Ískraft, Klaedning, Og Svo ehf., Monstro, Byggingafélagid Bakki, Hladbaer-Colas, Holraesahreinsun, Ísar hf., and others. Sponsors from the Seychelles are the Seychelles Ministry of Education, Air Seychelles, and Cable & Wireless.

The Icelandic National Broadcasting Service reported on the project in its television news broadcast yesterday, 4 September, and in the television station programme Spotlight (Kastljós), which aired immediately after the news.

The Spotlight (Kastljós) programme can be seen here.

Since June 2006, over 20 people have travelled to the Seychelles in connection with the project.
