Aligned with its sustainability push, BPI, through its social development arm, BPI Foundation, committed to donating 94 used but functional computer units to four public schools in Muntinlupa City.
“One of BPI's key business priorities for 2022 and beyond is to champion sustainability. We believe that doing well by doing good is key to building a sustainable and better Philippines,” said BPI Foundation Executive Director Owen Cammayo. “This donation is also our way of supporting our public school teachers and students by providing them additional access to online learning amid these trying times.”
For the first leg, 26 desktops and two laptops were turned over to Poblacion Elementary School, which has 144 faculty members and more than 5,000 students, with most of them from relocated families.
Dr. Dominic Idanan, the Muntinlupa Schools Division Superintendent noted that technology has become an important platform for learning during this time of the pandemic. “These gadgets can help a lot and contribute to the quality education of our students,” he said.
Meanwhile, the remaining computer units will be distributed to Itaas Elementary School, Muntinlupa National High School, and Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Muntinlupa in the coming weeks.
