ITU Secretary keeps his promise to donate laptops to Tongan schools

ITU Secretary General of International Telecommunication Union (ITU) kept his words and gifted two schools in Tonga with laptops.

Tonga High School and Tupou College had received 10 laptops respectively from the United Nations’ organisation this week.

ITU Secretary General Houlin Zhao made his “promise” last year while visiting Tonga.

Zhao had the opportunity to meet with the principals of the two schools.

“The discussions made with the two principals highlighted the need for more laptops and he offered to donate 10 laptops to each high school,” MEIDECC CEO Paula Ma’u was quoted as saying.

Ma’u said: “the laptops aimed to enhance students learning and for them to utilize it for academic purposes such as project research and sharing information”.

ITU main task is to coordinate telecommunication operations and services throughout the world.

Right now Kaniva News provides a free, politically independent, bilingual news service for readers around the world that is absolutely unique. We are the largest New Zealand-based Tongan news service, and our stories reach Tongans  wherever they are round the world. But as we grow, there are increased demands on Kaniva News for translation into Tongan on our social media accounts and for the costs associated with expansion. We believe it is important for Tongans to have their own voice and for Tongans to preserve their language, customs and heritage. That is something to which we are strongly committed. That’s why we are asking you to consider sponsoring our work and helping to preserve a uniquely Tongan point of view for our readers and listeners.
