In support of the Department of Education’s (DepEd) efforts to give more learners and educators access to computers, BDO Foundation and Huawei Philippines have partnered to provide laptops donated by Huawei to five DepEd schools divisions all over the country.
The partners recently turned over laptops to schools in Marawi City, Lanao del Sur in a ceremony led by Huawei Philippines and BDO Foundation officers.
Accepted by DepEd Marawi City schools division superintendent Anna Zenaida Unte-Alonto, the computers were distributed to Banggolo Elementary School, Madaya Lilod Elementary School, Mambuay Elementary School, Mamintal Disomangcop Central Elementary School, Marawi City Elementary School, Marinaut I Elementary School and Marinaut II Elementary School.
A few weeks earlier, Huawei and BDO Foundation also turned over laptops to schools in
Dumaguete City, Negros Oriental.
The event was witnessed by DepEd Dumaguete City schools division superintendent Dr. Gregorio Cyrus Elejorde, Huawei Philippines public affairs manager Chahol Liang, BDO Foundation president Mario Deriquito and the heads of BDO branches in the city.
The brand-new computers were distributed to Amador Dagudag Memorial Elementary School, Calindagan Elementary School, Cantil-e Elementary School, Hermenegilda F. Gloria Memorial High School, Junob National High School and West City Science Elementary School.
Aside from Dumaguete and Marawi, the corporate citizenship initiative also includes Benguet, Puerto Princesa City in Palawan and Tayabas City in Quezon.
