Modern day missionaries? The Irish and Swedes teamed up today to launch the UN's ICT Task Force's Global e-Schools and Communities Initiative. The initiative will be piloted in Bolivia, Ghana, Namibia and India between now and Tunis 2005, but run from Dublin.

"We've always been seen as missionaries with a love of education and knowledge and a willingness to bring it around the world," said Brendan Tuohy, Secretary General of Ireland's Ministry of Communication.

I think, that e-School - is realy good idea.Especially for those children, who can`t attend school because of state of health. For example, in Russia there is a special social program, which is called "Electronic Moscow". Moscow government buy computers and install it to invslid children`s home free of charge. Special trained teachers every day conduct on-line lessons. "Electronic Moscow" is a young project, but it`s increasing from day to day. So that`s why i think that e-school - is usefull idea.
