Federal Territory Putera MIC has launched a "PC for young minds" programme to collect new or used computers to aid primary schools in education.

Its chief M.Thanasekaran said for a start, 10 reconditioned computers would be given to three Tamil schools in Kuala Lumpur; SJK(T) Vivekananda, SJK (T) Edinburgh and SJK (T) Segambut.

"We started this campaign using the internet, especially via Facebook about three weeks ago and the respond has been encouraging. We aimed to collect another 25 computers by end October," he told reporters after the progamme's launching here on Thursday.

Thanasekaran said initially, focus was on primary schools in Kuala Lumpur and would be later expanded to other areas.

He said donors from outside Kuala Lumpur were welcomed and that it was willing to collect and service the computers.
