Member for Koroba–Lake Kopiago, Philip Undialu, wants to improve ICT Services in his electorate.
He intends to do this by making computer classes compulsory for all schools under his care.
The local MP made these announcements when he officially opened a double classroom, with the support from the Digicel Foundation.
Koroba–Lake Kopiago District has only one high school, one secondary school and 27 primary schools. With the launch of the double–classroom by Digicel Foundation for Hunianda Primary School, the local MP, Philip Undialu wants to make ICT Compulsory in all the schools.
Mr Undialu told the people that it’s through the partnership with Digicel Foundation, that extends the hand of the government to bring services to rural Districts of the country. Therefore, he urged them to look after the double classroom provided by the Foundation.
At the cost of K140, 000, the expenses were shared between the local MP through his District Services Improvement Program Fund and Digicel Foundation.
The facility comes with fully kitted 9000 litre water tank, two ventilation improved pipes, toilets, shower and a solar system plus 40 desks for the students.
The local MP described the contributions of Digicel Foundation as a noble move made by an organisation.
He has allocated K1000 fortnightly towards a fundraising drive to purchase computers for all primary schools in the District. There are also plans to establish Technical and University Centres, because currently there is none.
Hela Provincial Administrator, William Bando, extended the support from the Office of the Governor, pleading for more support.
Koroba–Lake Kopiago District Administration also plans to come up with more funds with support from developers of the Oil and Gas in the resource rich province of Hela.
