Leading consumer finance company Home Credit Philippines (HCPH) recently partnered with ABS-CBN Lingkod Kapamilya Foundation and the Department of Education – Capiz Division to boost digital learning in the country.
To enable more Filipino students to benefit from the digital mode of learning, HCPH is equipping 14 national high schools with 100 computer units for their blended and distance learning setups.
“As the country further progresses in its digital transformation journey, it has become more crucial for educational institutions to closely collaborate with organizations for support in upgrading equipment and developing a digitally empowered workforce ready to excel in the emerging digital economy,” shared Susana Ong, HCPH chief information officer.
“Through this partnership with ABS-CBN Foundation, we at Home Credit hope to push for a more ideal and conducive learning environment for Filipino students,” shared Kenneth Lerona, HCPH head of PR.
This effort is in line with Home Credit’s thrust of championing environmental, social and governance (ESG) programs by providing the underserved education sectors with access to tools that can enrich their learning experience. This initiative also supports ABS-CBN Lingkod Kapamilya Foundation’s Programa Genio, which hopes to strengthen Information and Communications Technology senior high school programs in the country through training and programs for teachers and learners and partnerships with education stakeholders.
“One of Programa Genio’s efforts is to partner with like-minded organizations in providing learners with ICT gadgets and equipment. This is in line with our long-term goal of honing young individuals to become competent drivers of the country’s workforce. We are grateful to Home Credit Philippines for the support, and we look forward to seeing our beneficiaries take advantage of the tools provided to them,” shared Maricar Estole, teacher and program head of ABS-CBN Foundation’s Programa Genio.
A total of 14 secondary schools in Capiz received the computer units last May 31, 2022. These are Maayon National High School, Tuburan National High School, Yating National High School, East Villaflores National High School, Leodegario D. Deocampo Sr. National High School, Panitan National High School, Dulangan National High School, Felix Balgos National High School, Pawa National High School, Arturo Jugo National High School, Basiao National High School, David Moises National High School, Ishmael B. Orillos National High School and Mambusao East National High School.
“The power and importance of technology in education are evident now more than ever as Filipino students needed access to technology during the health crisis and even more so now that the country is emerging from it. Home Credit Philippines’ assistance will indeed be advantageous for our division as it will enable us to offer education that is more relevant and serving to what the nation needs,” shared Jose Niro Nillasca, DepEd Capiz assistant schools division superintendent.
