PLDT, PEF turn over 5 computer units to Katipunan High School
The Philippine Long Distance Telephone Company (PLDT) through the Philippine Eagle Foundation (PEF) turned over five computer units to Katipunan High School (KHS) in Brgy. Katipunan, Arakan, North Cotabato on Wednesday, March 17.
PEF Executive Director Dennis Salvador said that PLDT is one of the foundation’s heavily invested partners when it comes to community-based initiatives. Among the PEF’s community-based initiatives is providing basic social services to its partner communities by engaging its partners like PLDT to help.
KHS Principal Ferdinand Mariano said that their Grade 10 students would benefit from the new computers especially for their research outputs. Moreover, he added that PLDT’s donations would also help them lessen SARDOs (student-at-risk-of-dropping-out).
Evelyn del Rosario, head of the PLDT Community Relations and Public Affairs, also attended the ceremony to personally turn over the five newly refurbished computers. An education advocate herself, she said that they have also helped and will continue to help schools most especially in far-flung areas.
This ceremony also marks PLDT’s second year of partnership with the PEF, furthering their steadfast support for the foundation and its advocacies, particularly through supporting PEF’s partner indigenous community in the Forest Corridor Development Program in Arakan, North Cotabato.
