In their most recent landmark for their CSR campaign, ASUS Philippines is aiming to increase computer literacy in Central Luzon. ASUS donates a total of 80 laptops to two schools in association with partners Fil-Chi Love and Care Foundation, and the Taiwan Digital Opportunity Center. All towards sustainable development!
The team provided for one High School and one Elementary School in need of new, innovative tools. First, Sto. Domingo National Trade School (SDNTS) in Sto. Domingo, Nueva Ecija. This school caters to about 3,350 students from Grade 7 to 12. As a firm believer that students will reach their full potentials should they be given adequate resources, ASUS provided 50 laptops to these students. However, supply is still greatly limited. Students with Internet and Computing Fundamentals (ICF), and Computer Science Studies (CSS) classes will then be given priority for laptop use.
Lamo Elementary School in Nueva Vizcaya is the second beneficiary in this CSR campaign. With a small population of about 200 students from kinder to grade 6, the school still develops with the help of its alumni and other partners. It may be humble, but quality education should be right of all. ASUS gave this elementary school 30 laptops to let these kids learn the how-to’s in this modern world.
To sum it up, ASUS Philippines’ CSR activities has a primary goal of lessening the digital divide and improving education, according to Francis Garcia. In addition, learning processes and academic community should improve thus empowering the students. A systemic development for provinces.
The Philippines has one of the lowest standards for education. Let’s all do our part in raising the bar one by one. Because, above all, this venture is a beacon of hope for better quality education.
