If only I had mod points today .
You have hit the nail on the head - no investment in growing and developing exactly the people that are now in short supply.
I understand the point you were trying to make, but British Prime Ministers are all in fact Lords.
Historically, the title "prime minister" was not used (other than as an insult) and instead the most senior elected leader in the UK was known as The First Lord of the Treasury. Whilst that remains today, the title prime minister is widely and popularly used instead.
Henry Campbell-Bannerman was the first elected leader (1905) to popularly use the "prime minister" title.
Based on my experience doing very similar projects across China, my advice is to approach the many foreign firms doing business in your target country. Ask them for donations of hardware, expertise and / or cash.
We receive around 1,100 used laptops per year from the Fortune 500 companies doing business in China as well as thousands of volunteer hours (and occasionally cash). We send out emails twice a year and arrange collection of donated hardware.
I also agree that "teaching the teachers" should be the first step.
Your HR is wrong.

"Next attack"? Care to point me in the direction of a time since 1709 when Afghanistan has invaded or attacked another nation? Why threaten with annihilation a nation that has never harmed you or your country?
Afghanistan has been invaded by hostile forces repeatedly since 1709. The Afghanis have resisted those invasions as any nation rightly would.
The "American Dream" = money? Not much of dream then.
I do not want to live in an economy. I live in a society. I agree that an economy is important but do not accept that money / profit should come before all else.
My point remains, the overwhelming majority of your post consists of allegations and on these current charges he has yet to be found guilty.
"Asshole"? Really? My limited understanding is that he is an innocent person until found otherwise, no?
It is all too easy to cast allegations around. At this stage he is not an "asshole" but instead a wholly innocent person accused of serious crimes.
The agreement you refer was a bilateral agreement that would have resulted in North Korea receiving a light-water reactor in exchange for its undertakings not to proceed with a heavy-water system.
The agreement you refer to was unilaterally broken and not by North Korea.
Not necessarily. There are often significant tax advantages to leasing.
