The Luxembourg-based satellite operator has joined the project, which aims to bring notebook computers to children in developing nations, as a corporate partner.
SES Global has made a $2m cash donation and promised to provide capacity on its global satellite network free of charge.
The company will also assist in the development of a satellite dish base station that will be placed in remote villages to connect laptop computers to the internet.
A spokesman for the company was unable to provide a monetary figure for the total donation.
It aims to produce a low cost notebook computer for children in developing nations, allowing them to pick up programming skills and enhance their education through the use of the internet.
The laptops are expected to launch under the name '2B1' some time early next year at a cost of about $140 per unit. The project is currently testing early developer boards and will not take any orders until the evaluation phase has been completed.
