MANILA — The Turkish International Cooperation and Development Agency (TIKA) donated computer packages to the Department of Education (DepEd) to boost the computerization program in schools nationwide.
An initial donation of 36 computer packages, seven (7) printers, and five (5) laptops were given Monday to the Justo Lukban Elementary School in Paco, Manila.
DepEd Secretary Bro. Armin Luistro thanked TIKA fortheir continuous support in providing technical assistance to schools in the Philippines.
Turkey Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu and Deputy Prime Minister Ali Babacan led the ceremonial turnover at the said school.
Prior to this donation, TIKA had also turned-over tablets last year to assist in recovering school records and DepEd office documents ravaged by Super Typhoon “Yolanda” (Haiyan).
The 40 tablets were intended to speed up the process of salvaging soaked, soiled, and destroyed documents.
