ICT lab goes operational through Samsung funding and Employee Volunteer Programme

A modern computer training laboratory developed and funded by Samsung through the Korean International Cooperation Agency (KOICA) became officially operational in Bishoftu (Debrezeit).


The ICT laboratory, located at the Bishoftu Higher Education Preparatory School, provides specialised computer and related information technology training services to students.
The facility was built at a cost of USD 30,000 and is equipped with Samsung Notebooks, a projector and screen. “At Samsung, we are inspired by a commitment to facilitate mutual economic and technological development. As you are aware, our Samsung colleagues from Korea as well as the local Samsung office here in Ethiopia, have been undertaking a series of community initiatives as part of our Employee Volunteer Programme. This EVP initiative has been facilitated by KOICA and has been highly successful. The opening of the ICT Lab today and the donation of medical equipment to the Korean Hospital are but some of the highlights of this exercise,” said Patricia Kingori, Samsung Electronics East Africa Corporate Marketing Business Leader.
The volunteer service was conducted in Ethiopia for the second time.
