Afghan / Pakistan XO story

This short report about an XO deployment in an Afghan refugee camp located in Pakistan has some interesting and typical elements:

1. tremendous transformation is reported, but not closely documented.

2. the narrative of transformation takes the kids from gloomy punishment to smiling engagement. The XO has this power–a big plug for Object Oriented Ontology–but sustained engagement is the challenge.

I love these stories, but I want more details!!
