First Computers from the Computer Project Arrive in Bohol

The first computers collected from various companies and individuals in the Netherlands arrived at schools in Bohol in September 2003. Now they have started their second life and are being used for various school activities, teaching pupils on the use of computers, etc.

Thanks a lot to all the people who donated computers and other equipment, and to Flora and Robert Schuyt, of Hol-Phil Trading, who donated the shipping of these computers from the Netherlands to Bohol. Without them this wouldn't have been possible.

First computers installed at a school library in Loon, Bohol.

Here you can still see the boxes in which they were send in the right corner.

Here is the computer set-up donated to the Pamilacan Island Dolphin and Whale Watching Organisation. From left to right: Nazario Valeroso, Teodoro Miculob, and Chairman Maximiniano Valeroso. Their organisation tries to employ former whalehunters as tourist guides, such that they can use their skills in for the protection of their former prey.
