Philippine IT group donates more computers for Cybervillage Project

ITAPhil BOT members hand over more laptop units
for the CyberVillage Project.  
In continuing support of IRRI’s CyberVillage Project, the IT Association of the Philippines (ITAPhil) donated four laptop computers on 10 October 2013. The donation comes on top of one made in September 2013 of three laptop units from Lenovo (Singapore) Pte. Ltd.
The computers came from two ITAPhil members—Acer Philippines, Inc. and SyCip, Gorez, Velayo and Co. (SGV & Co.)—and will be handed over to selected partner barangays of the project.

The CyberVillage Project is a joint undertaking of IRRI and the Bureau of Agricultural Research of the Philippine Department of Agriculture. It aims to provide ICT-based rice information services to farmers, examples of which are the Nutrient Manager for Rice, Rice Doctor, and the Pinoy Rice Knowledge Bank, that use village and municipal government halls as hubs.
