Students to use computers at schools in Chin State
28 February 2014: Computers provided to state schools in Chin State by the Chin National Front (CNF) in partnership with the Chin State government through the help of the Danish government are ready for use in June this year.
The CNF has been setting up more than 900 computers for about 30 schools in the nine townships of Tonzang, Tedim, Falam, Hakha, Thantlang, Matupi, Mindat, Kanpetlet and Paletwa since late last year, according to the Chinland Post, a weekly newspaper printed in Hakha.
Dr. Sui Khar, a CNF Secretary, said: “The machines would be fully prepared with internet access and printers for students to use at the start of their schools in June as students are taking final examinations and schools are to be closed for the summer.”
The CNF had completed installations in northern parts of the country’s least developed State and did another installation at the Basic Education High School No. 1 in Mindat town last week.
According to a CNF source, the last installation will be finished in Matupi next month.
It will be the first time computers are made available for students in Chin State to use at schools.
Signing a ceasefire agreement with Burma’s government in 2012, it has provided computers for school children as part of its development programme included in the peace deal.
According to the government statistics in 2009, there are 28 high schools and 24 high school branches in Chin State.#
