|Dear Fujii San,
It is my pleasure to receive e-mail from you with interest to visit Nepal. At the same time you are very much interested to help some computer software and computer.
I would like to welcome you in our mountainous country , Nepal as well as our secondary school.
Yes, there are very few schools in Nepal that they provide computer for the young children and school. I have started computer education for the students IBM XT with 81 Keys last 10 years.
Now, very hardly we have 8 computers. Among that we have one Pentium which has upgraded from 486 DX use for official purpose. We have other two computers 386DX and 486 DX with window-95. The other 4 are without hard disk, we teach logo and programming by using floppy disk.
Now, according to current curriculum we should provide them, MS Dos, Excial, Window-95 or 98, Q-basic etc.
We have only few computers with hard disc which is really difficult.
It is pity and difficult situation that we could not provide computer with hard disk.
We are still trying to manage it.
There are around 425 students in the School among them 300 are using computer in different time but computer really very much less and insufficient.
Our power, supply is 220 Volt.
It is wonderful idea to help us some computers and hard disk and some software.
You and your friends are most welcome to support for IT which very much necessary. We want use some computer for library and for the examination section with multimedia but we are not able to do it yet. This may help to understand the development of the world. I fell it is matter of great proud to meet friend like you with the help of Our great friend Muto Shiro. I welcome you to visit our school and teach us some idea about computer.. In our school there is Japanese language for the children. I hope Japanese version is quite useful for this to read and write also. But I am not sure that how far it is easy or difficult to convert in to English version.
Mostly we have English version program.

|Dear Fujii San and Muto San,
Thank you very much for your e-mail and deep concern to Nepal especially for the Suryoday Secondary school. I am very happy to answer your some queries.
We can convert by using some transformer 220 to 110 it is a bit expensive.
May be 50 to 70 US $ for this transformer.
We have window 95 in English version and can easily get Window 98 in English.
For the computer and computer parts the custom is only 10- 15% custom. If you send us some letters little before that it is support to the school and 2nd hand (Used computer and Parts).
I believed it won't be problems. We can talk to the authority.
We are using modem in out side till now.
