In this fiscal year (2021 to 2022), BHN has been promoting activities to donate reuse tablets in cooperation with the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications and Padeco Co.,Ltd.


Hand-over ceremony of 1,200 tablets in Papua New Guinea


As part of those activities, about 4,000 units have already been delivered overseas such as Palau, Papua New Guinea, Kenya, and Uzbekistan, to mainly aim at implementing e-Learning, and another 600 units will be donated to Sri Lanka, Cambodia, and the Philippines.

Presentation and Hand-over ceremonies between some countries and Japan were held. The ceremony for 1,200 units to Papua New Guinea was held on March 1.

Since the situation of corona infection is still severe in both countries and it is not possible to hold a ceremony with all concerned parties in one place, the ceremony was held in the form of an online ceremony connecting the two countries.

The Ambassador of Japan to Papua New Guinea representing Japan and the Minister of Education representing Papua New Guinea attended the online ceremony, and both were highly interested in the future of e-learning using the donated tablets.
