Gabon, with a population of about 2.03 million, has one of the highest per capita incomes in Africa due to its rich oil resources, and is currently working to spread computer education throughout the country.The computers donated by KCG are expected to make a significant contribution to ICT in the country.Ms. Egange Mireille, a student at Kyoto Graduate Institute of Information (KCGI) from Gabon, who will be working as a project assistant at the Embassy of the Republic of Gabon in Japan (Meguro-ku, Tokyo) after completing her studies in March 2018, also contributed to this donation.In addition, His Excellency Joseph Gillo Effangon Obage, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Embassy of the Republic of Gabon, will attend the ceremony to commemorate the 55th anniversary of the founding of KCG Group to be held on November 1, 2018 at the Main Hall on the 6th floor of KCG Kyoto Ekimae School as a guest of honor and deliver a congratulatory speech.
