Huawei donates Rs. 30m to Tharunyata Hetak's Gamata IT
"I went to University with no computer skills and I found it very
difficult to compete. I lacked typing skills and my term papers didn't
have a global touch because I lacked Internet research skills" - Joseph
Ochieng, Community Organiser, Africa.
