Responding to an unprecedented nationwide demonstration of interest and enthusiasm, the government of Vanuatu is set to announce the first candidates to receive ICT access, computer labs and tablets for schools throughout the country.

The Government’s Chief Information Officer, Mr Fred Samuel said “we received hundreds of applications, and now we have responded to them. The Government is proud to support this work; and we haven’t seen unity of purpose and commitment like this since independence. We have a long road ahead of us, but the first steps are critical, and it’s great to get started. We thank the Ministry of Education, Telecommunications Radiocommunications and Broadcasting Regulator (TRBR) and the Australian Government, through its Governance for Growth (GfG) programme for its support and contribution”.
