Yes seems silly to buy a laptop for a 5 year old child that dies 6 months 
later from malnutrition and other post World War II mostly eradicated in 
the Western World illnesses.

Bit o' pipe and a few pumps, some solar stations and presto.  Those kids 
will have better food increasing their brain function, and can hydrate 
themselves properly to actually use a computer!
