Aeta students receive learning tablets from CDC, Converge
The Clark Development Corporation (CDC) and Converge ICT Solutions Inc. donated electronic learning materials to Aeta students of the CDC-OB Montessori Pagsasarili Family Care Program, according to a Philippine Information Agency report.
The materials include 60 learning tablets and nine Large Format Displays (LFDs), which “will aid student-beneficiaries to efficiently continue their education via e-learning module even amidst the current pandemic,” the report said.
During the turnover of learning materials, newly-appointed CDC president and CEO Manuel Gaerlan urged parents of the student-beneficiaries to continue giving value to their children’s education.
“We have seen the improvement of the students through this program. We started from 50 and now we have 80 students and counting,” he was quoted as saying in the report.
“The students are lucky to have OB Montessori as partner and I hope the parents will continue to guide their children to help uplift their life in the future. I hope there will be more kind-hearted company like Converge to help us with our corporate social responsibility (CSR)”, Gaerlan said.
Converge ICT CEO Dennis Anthony Uy expressed optimism about his company’s partnership with CDC.
“It is a great honor to partner with CDC in this kind of CSR for Indigenous Peoples. We see that these young people, our next generation will be our future,” Uy was quoted as saying in the report.
Aeta Pagsasarili Family Care Center was created through the partnership of CDC and OB Montessori, according to the report.
Launched in July 2019, it is one of the state-owned firm’s CSR initiatives to provide an early childhood and adult learning program for Indigenous Peoples from nearby communities of the freeport.
