TFI Coordinator, Yolanda Bafmatuk said the Foundation is happy to partner with Datec PNG Limited in supporting Schools in PNG.
“We understood the dilemma they have in printing close to five hundred copies of just newsletters to go out to students and we hope this would help them in terms of their operations and printing jobs,” Bafmatuk said.
