The computers will be presented to Phan Dinh Phung Secondary School in Ninh Phuoc District in the central province of Ninh Thuan and Loc Tan Secondary School in Bao Lam District in the Central Highlands province of Lam Dong.
Last year, the company contributed 20 used computers to the project. A group of volunteers from the firm will directly support pupils of those schools in the project with information technology knowledge.
STF launched the project in 2010 and since then has received 170 used computers and information technology equipment from firms including CSC Vietnam, PepsiCo Vietnam and Hogan Lovell
So far, the non-profit organization has delivered 130 computers and equipment to schools in the Mekong Delta, central region and Central Highlands.
