I read with interest the article today about the Chinchilla Administrations Anti-Poverty Internet Program.
Late last year a neighborhood committee approached me about donating computers to the local school (El Carmen La Suiza).
I met with teachers at the school, and they specified the programs they wanted installed in the computers.
In January I donated three computers (2 PC’s and one Mac) to the school and had a local technician install the specified programs.
As of last week, they are still setting in a corner of an office, and have never been used. The parents are very frustrated but their attempts to get a computer instruction program started at the El Carmen school have been met with indifference.
This will be my last donation to the school.
