OKAKARARA, 22 SEP (NAMPA) – Various community based organisations at Okakarara in the Otjozondjupa Region on Tuesday received a donation of 303 second-hand computers and the same amount of printers from a charity organisation in Germany.
Director of the Charity Network organisation in Germany Walter Zielinski donated the information technology equipment to Okakarara Constituency Councillor Vetaruhe Kandorozu, who then allocated it to 37 different community, youth and co-operative organisations that are operational in the constituency.
The equipment is valued at over N.dollars 720 000 and came after a request by the councillor.
The computer sets are second-hand and equipped with the latest software and antivirus programmes, said Zielinski who is a computer specialist himself.
“They are well looked after and may last for 10 years,” he said.
Zielinski said with his knowledge, he will assist in assembling and connecting the computer systems at different settlements where they have been allocated around the constituency.
Most beneficiaries are based in Okakarara, Coblenz, Okondjatu, Okamatapati, Okatjoruu and Ohorongombaranga village.
Some beneficiaries received one computer and printer and others more, like the Okakarara Community Youth Organisation which got 30 computers and printers to use for training and the Otjituuo Community Forest Conservancy which got one computer and printer.
The councillor urged the recipients to look after the equipment and use them for the intended purposes.
Different beneficiaries told Nampa they needed computers and printers to type official letters to Government or foreign-based donors to request for sponsorship and support.
