Mr. Nakamura has spent most of his life as a researcher under the Faculty of Environmental Engineering at Kitakyushu University in Japan. He also serves as the chief director of the Institute of Technology Information Education.
Supporting Sambat Trust
Being a promoter of technology information education, he then decided to donate computers to the schools supported by Sambat Trust. First, he visited the schools in February 2012 to evaluate their technological needs. Then, as a fulfillment of his promise, he donated five computers to Sambat Elementary School on his recent visit. He will send five more computers to the school next year.
Expanding the coverage of his donation, he will also give twelve more computers next year to the other schools supported by Sambat Trust.
He hopes that providing computers to the schools can improve the educational level of the students and make them at par with other schools, not just in the city but also on the national level.
Vice President Atty. Gay Marie Francisco willingly agreed to
Mr. Nakamura’s proposal of using the institute’s facility and resources for the teacher training. They decided that volunteer students from FAITH will train the teachers from the schools sponsored by Sambat Trust for five Saturdays.
The primary focus of the training is on the basic desktop programs, such as Word, Excel and PowerPoint Presentation. Another important skill to be taught is utilizing the Internet, specifically emailing and searching for images and articles.
Mr. Nakamura is optimistic that the teachers will use these skills in providing interesting lessons to their students and efficiency in their job.
When asked how he feels about the whole time he spent in the Philippines helping Sambat Trust’s cause, he answered, “Ako masaya!”
