ADOC Successful Story

My name is Emmanuel Stewart Wakuri and I hail from a small District known as Ambunti in East Sepik Province in Papua New Guinea. I completed my 12th grade in 2009 and did not receive any offer to continue my studies and decided to travel to Lae which is the second largest city in PNG to search for better quality and affordable learning institutions in the city that suits my needs and career plans for my future.

I stayed in Lae and in September 2011, there was a Show known as Morobe Cultural Show and I was visiting University of Technology’s stall when I realized the Unitech ADOC Centre and asked the coordinator who has been kind to assist in providing the Centres course information and the UPNG ADOC Centre’s information as well. I then later in October enquire to study a week long course with the Unitech ADOC Centre and was given a space to study the Basics Computer Literature Course. I later realise that, I was able to study in an environment where I have the privileged to use a Computer per person with the use of Projector and Slides to lecture by the tutor to lecture to us.

I took up the week long course and realized that, within one week, I have already knew how to type a letter, able to know the functions of keyboards and the most interesting thing that I learned while attending the UNITECH ADOC Centre’s course is, I was able to create an Email Address which I can hardly forget ADOC for a great achievement I achieved in my life to have an email address while a student at ADOC Centre in Lae. With the knowledge I learned from the ADOC Centre in Lae, I then applied by emailing a letter to enquire to study at International Training Institute College in Lae.

They approved my letter and I am currently studying at ITI.With the basic knowledge of Computing from ADOC, I am progressing well with my studies at ITI. I am very much pleased and would like to appreciate the ADOC Centre for what it has done to my life and I have enquired to come for a further advance courses offered at the Unitech ADOC Center. I would like to build my life as a simple living example to others what the ICT development skills have to do with the current living standard in Papua New Guinea. I personally would like to thank the Unitech ADOC Center and ADOC Secretariat and other contributing organization for the wonderful opportunity center here in Papua New Guinea.

ADOC success story

This is a story written by the Unitech coordinator who interviewed one of a trainee of the center. Unitech ADOC Center is located in the second largest city of Papua New Guinea and situated in a university (UNITECH). People in and around the city do pay visit and see road show events that were done to promote the Unitech ADOC Center. Papua New Guinea has only two APEC Digital Opportunity Center namely Unitech ADOC Center and UPNG ADOC Center. The above picture shows a drop out student from grade 12 at his village in Bougainville (North Solomon Province) and come to the city looking for opportunities which could change his life and at least earn an income. He his young and energetic as seen from the picture. He comes to the Unitech ADOC Center when he heard from a church group he attends. He registered his name with the church group and UNITECH ADOC Center invited the group to come for a Basics Computer Literacy course. He develops his skills and knowledge with the course offered. As seen from the picture I took him out of his workplace to get a photo of himself which I could share with other at the ADOC 2.0 Photo Contest 2012. Currently he is with the working uniform where he works as a counter service attendant in printing and editing document for the university students who are unfortunate to the privilege of having a computer or a printer. Now he appreciates the Unitech APEC Digital Opportunity Center for the training he had at the center. He has enquired to come for a further advance courses offered at the Unitech ADOC Center. He wishes to build his life as a simple living example to other s what the ICT development skills have to do with the current living standard in Papua New Guinea. Thank you Unitech ADOC Center and ADOC Secretariat and other contributing organization for the wonderful opportunity center here in Papua New Guinea.

ADOC Success Stories: The Importance of ADOC at UNITECH and Its Impact on My IT Skills

 

In August 2006, ADOC Secretariat established its first APEC Digital Opportunity Center in Papua New Guinea in collaboration with Unitech University. Being the first time our university would have access to state of the art computer equipment, all of us had a good reason to be excited. Stanley Osao, Library IT support staff and newly appointed Manager of the UNITECH APEC Digital Opportunity Center, gave library staff priority to participate in training programs and access the center’s facilities.

 

When we heard the news, all of us in the library staff were looking forward to this remarkable opportunity. The training sessions began soon, and we were completely delighted to use such modern equipment.  The environment at the centre was pleasant and hospitable; we couldn’t have asked for more. At our first Power Point training, we learnt the basics of using this practical application. Just trying to find the right colours for the presentations so that they blended in with the graphics was a new thing for all of us, not to mention how difficult it was to make sense of the slide features. By the end of the training, we felt that the skills we had learnt were very valuable and would be lifelong lessons that would help us to convey professional presentations.

 

I am, therefore, sincerely thankful to UNITECH and ADOC for this APEC Digital Opportunity Center. Its establishment atUNITECHUniversity and especially the services it provides to the Matheson Library have opened doors leading to digital opportunities for students, faculty, and the general public ofPapua New Guinea.

ADOC Success Stories: Putting ICT to Good Use at My Small Shop

My name is Nookan Chansri, and for several years, I have owned a small shop in Khon-Kaen, Thailand. Sadly, I had no chance to receive much education, especially in the field of ICT. During most of my life, my only concern had been to find ways to earn a living to provide for my family.

 

Two years ago, a neighbor told me about an APEC Digital Opportunity Center computer training course at the College of Asian Scholars and recommended that I join it. I used to think that I was too old to learn about technology, but eventually I decided to join the course, since it was free and offered on the weekends.

 

At the beginning, it was hard learning how to interact with PCs, but the teachers helped us to feel comfortable using them. We learnt the basic operations of PCs, how to use the internet, and by the end of the 1st phase, my family was so proud of me! At this point, I realized that I needed to learn how to use computers to benefit my shop. My teacher suggested that I learn MS-Office, and very soon I was learning to use Excel. Excel is an excellent accounting tool that enables me to manage my shop’s inventory, for instance.

 

Today, thanks to my teachers and the APEC Digital Opportunity Center, I feel proud of myself. I have been able to use the information and skills they taught me and put them to good use in my small shop. Whenever I have time, I will even review my old lessons at home on my niece’s computer!

The goal of ADOC Photo Contest is to encourage ADOC members expressing themselves about How ADOC impact on local communities and the contribution ADOC made.

ADOC Success Stories: From Selling Rice Cakes to Loan Officer

I am Lyam Dominguez II, 23 years old, and the second of 6 brothers and sisters. My father is a security guard and my mother is a housewife.  When my father got laid off, I wanted to help my family, so I started making rice cakes and selling them every day around Malabon and Navotas, in thePhilippines. From the little money I earned, I contributed to our family’s everyday needs, but I wished I could earn more so I could help them more.

One fateful day, a staff member from ZOTO, Ate Inday, went to our home and helped us to organize a youth organization.  I became one of the officers and got very much involved in the activities of the organization, especially in the trainings conducted by ZOTO at the APEC Digital Opportunity Center. I then attended a computer literacy training course, which taught me the basics of using a computer.  At first, I was really scared to even touch the computer because I feared that I might break it, and didn’t have money to pay for repairs. But slowly, at the course progressed, I became familiar with many software applications. When I completed the training, I became a ZOTO volunteer and acquired experience writing reports for the community clinic. Soon after, I was elected Secretary of the ZOTO Malabon Chapter. I also accepted side jobs from people seeking assistance in applying for employment, and typing documents such as cover letters, resumes, and recommendation letters.

Eventually, I needed to look for a permanent source of income, so I applied for a position as a microfinance loan officer at an organization providing services for the urban poor. I was hired in 2008 and I’m convinced that the knowledge I acquired at the APEC Digital Opportunity Center was a decisive factor in my hiring. I thank ZOTO and the Computer Literacy Program that was taught at the APEC Digital Opportunity Center. I will forever be indebted to them.
