In the summer of 1994, we shipped 200 sets of computers to Lima with the plan to be distributed to 20 schools. It was first an initiation of the Ministry of Presidency, but later was transfered to the Ministry of Education. The first seminar was held in January, 1995
Afterwards, fifteen Peruvian high school teachers were invited to KCG in Japan for a more advanced seminar.
Mr. Pedro Fujimori, brother of then president Mr. Alberto Fujimori, reported that all the computers were now distributed to some ten high schools in different areas of the country for the start of computer education in Peru.
In November, 1999, we made an additional donation to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Japanese immigration movement to the country. We donated 43 PC’s to the Association of Japanese Peruvians. They were to be installed in the Association’s facility, and be made available, for free of charge, to all Peruvian people, regardless of whether they are of Japanese ancestry or not. These computers are to promote computer literacy in the country.
