Overcrowded classrooms, lack of books, school supplies, tables and chairs, lack of teachers — these are few challenges that Filipino students are facing.
The government has been doing its best to improve the educational system in the country. But it may not be enough.
And because of its corporate social responsibility, Procter and Gamble (P&G) Philippines is committed to help in bringing the education to the next level by providing technology and connectivity to the Filipino students nationwide with what they called e.Studyante program.
Along with the generous sponsors and the Pinay Mommies Community (PMC)’s support, the e.Studyante program will provide kids from selected schools with an XO Laptop from the One Laptop per Child (OLPC) Association. The XO laptop is a rugged, low-power, connected laptop especially designed to make learning more engaging and more fun for students.
Students can use their laptops not just to learn but to share and connect with each other, with their communities and with the world – helping them all become an “e.Studyante.”
The goal is simple: Give out 1,000,000 laptops in time for P&G’s 100th year.
“For children all over the country, the challenge of education begins even before they step into the classroom. Some have to wake up at the crack of dawn and walk miles through unpaved roads, through woods and rivers, just to get to school. We are doing this for these students. We want to make this journey worthwhile for them by giving them the tool that will place the world’s knowledge at their fingertips – through a laptop and internet connectivity,” said Chad Sotelo, e.Studyante Country Marketing Manager.
