Globe Business Launches Support a School Program to Help in Online Learning
In support of the Department of Education (DepEd)’s thrust to make education accessible to all Filipinos, Globe Business is collaborating with Teach for the Philippines (TFP) in the distribution of connectivity resources to support teachers and students in their continued e-learning.
Through its newly-launched ‘Support A School’ program, Globe Business is giving 200 Home Prepaid WiFi modems and 128 Globe MyFi modems to nine schools across the country, along with 200 Globe Prepaid cards worth ₱500 each to 315 public school teachers and students.
In line with the group’s initiative to pay it forward to the different communities they serve, the schools slated to receive the donations—including Wawa Elementary School, City Central School, Fr. William F. Masterson Elementary School, Cauayan North Central School, La Paz Elementary School, Cagayan De Oro National High School, Carmen National High School, Don Mariano Marcos Memorial State University, and Inapoy Elementary School—are part of Globe Business’ existing network of customers. TFP will identify the beneficiaries from each school.
TFP is a for-purpose, non-stock, non-profit organization founded in 2012 that aims for an inclusive, relevant, and excellent education for all Filipino children.
“We want our teachers and students to be able to keep up with the demands of the times. To do this, they must have the right digital tools to overcome the challenges posed by an unprecedented school year mired by a global pandemic,” said Angel Ramos, Marketing & Events Director at Teach for the Philippines.
DepEd has earlier stressed the importance of reaching out to all learners and bringing basic education to them by all means, even if there are no face-to-face classes.
KD Dizon, Vice President for Globe Business MSME Group, shared, “Our partnership with Teach for the Philippines has been an integral part of our support for students and teachers’ adjustment to e-learning. Like our partners, we believe that everyone has a right to quality education. We hope this initiative will enable more Filipinos in their learning journeys.”
