Lamphun Technical College looking for computers

The Ministry of Education’s child development project requires computer equipment for schools in remote areas. Lamphun Technical College is asking for computers, new or old, and computer equipment such as printers and scanners for the rural schools. Cash donations are also accepted as this can be used for computer repair or to buy new equipment.

There are more than 4 million primary school students in the rural areas, but there is only one computer per 137 primary students and per 54 secondary school students. (413 schools also have no electrical power and 21,741 have no telephone line.)

Anyone interested in donating can receive additional information at the information center, Ministry of Education, every Technical College, the Institute of Rajamangala Technology, and Rajabhat Institutes. People in Lamphun can contact Lamphun Technical College, 053 561 029 ext. 101.
