Iresha – The First Digital Ambassador

Iresha Dilhani I think I am a very lucky girl. You must be wondering why! Let me tell you. When I was 12 years old, I joined Horizon Lanka Foundation. I was lucky back then because as part of the Digital Butterflies programme I became the first personal computer owner in the village! This program has been the success of our village’s IT development. Now we have launched a new goal for Digital Butterflies. It is called Digital Ambassadors. We hope that under this program, all senior students will be able to have a laptop instead of a desktop computer. We consider laptops more suitable for village homes as they are more compact for our small houses. Also, transportation of desktop PCs is very expensive for us and moving laptops is much easier and faster.

So why am I a lucky girl again? Well, thanks to Mr Horikawa of Japan, I became the first Digital Ambassador. Now I have my very own laptop at home, which I use for my work and also, help my friends with their work. Mr. Horikawa’s kind gift came installed with Japanese software. Unfortunately, my Japanese language skills are bad. So with the help of Ranuka we reinstalled the English version software. I think this laptop will bring me hope for my future. I would like to say a special Thank You to Mr. Horikawa for giving me this wonderful gift. Like Mr. Horikawa, if somebody can help my friends, it would be of great benefit to them.
