Leading digital solutions platform Globe is bolstering the digitization initiatives of the Department of Agriculture by providing critical internet connectivity to select DA- Agricultural Training Institute (DA-ATI) regional centers nationwide.

This collaboration was highlighted by Globe’s turnover of 609 modems with SIM cards and ₱609,000 worth of load cards to the DA-ATI, a donation valued at around ₱1.09 million. The turnover was held at the recent “Pistang Ani ng Bayan: Harvest Festival and Field Day,” an annual celebration marking a successful harvest season across various community gardens.

Globe’s contribution supports the vital role of DA-ATI in providing training programs and advisory services to farmers, fisherfolk, and agricultural extension workers. Globe's assistance empowers DA-ATI to carry out its mandate to modernize agricultural methods and techniques, thereby enhancing the livelihood of the agricultural community.

"As a company committed to helping build a digitally empowered Philippines, we are proud to support DA-ATI's relevant mission of transforming our agriculture sector. By providing the necessary digital infrastructure, we aim to strengthen capacity-building initiatives of DA-ATI, ensuring that our hardworking farmers and fisherfolk are equipped with the latest advancements in agricultural technology,” said Yoly Crisanto, Globe Group Chief Sustainability and Corporate Communications Officer.

ATI Director Remelyn Recoter spoke of the value of connectivity support for farmers, particularly those in remote areas.

“These tools will strengthen the country’s end-to-end farming advisory services, equipping our farmers and fishers with tools to harness the power of information. This is most especially critical to those geographically isolated and disadvantaged areas,” said Recoter.

“This is just the beginning of a deeper and wider collaborative effort in building a resilient and inclusive Philippine agriculture. In the coming months, there will be more capacity-building projects and advisory services related to digital agriculture that we will be bringing to our clients and stakeholders, together with Globe and all our partners for development. We are certain that through continuous collaboration among key organizations, the digitalization of agriculture is possible,” she said.

Globe’s partnership with DA-ATI signifies its commitment to facilitating digital transformation across all sectors of society, ensuring inclusivity and equal access to digital resources.
