The government's decision to let two separate organisations run their own internet-learning programmes for underprivileged children will create problems unless students can choose between the schemes, according to one of the two groups. Erwin Huang, chief executive of WebOrganic, said the 300,000 eligible students should be able to choose between his group's scheme and one from the eInclusion Foundation. The groups will receive HK$100 million each to train underprivileged children who benefit from the government's internet-study subsidy. Huang said the unprecedented arrangement left Hong Kong divided, with Weborganic responsible for western areas and eInclusion responsible for the east. He said the decision was 'mysterious' and 'questionable'. 'It is for the government to answer why it is so,' he said. Because the two organisations have different pricing policies and computer hardware, the terms they can offer to the city's children are also different. Huang's group offers computer-plus-internet packages from HK$250 a year for those eligible for the government's internet subsidy of HK$1,300. The eInclusion group offers a HK$128 per year option. Huang's group had no plans to reduce its price. But he said the government should let children choose. '[Without free choice] children are bound to ask if they are treated fairly. We need to address that. Otherwise it is going to be hard to explain [the price difference].' Huang was mystified that his group had not been allowed to run the programme alone after coming first in the tender process. The process became the subject of controversy when former government information technology chief Jeremy Godfrey claimed it had involved political interference. Godfrey said top officials pressured him to give the contract to the eInclusion Foundation - affiliated with the Internet Professional Association (iPRoA) and the Boys' and Girls' Clubs Association of Hong Kong. The government has denied Godfrey's claims. Attempts to formally investigate the process have been voted down in the Legislative Council. Representative of eInclusion said the two organisations should respect the current mechanism. 'We both treat serving children as our top priority and I think the current arrangement can lead to positive competition. We should stick to the current mechanism,' Lilian Law Suk-kwan, executive director of the Boys' and Girls' Clubs Association, said.
