PBSP chief visits recipient of ICT program

Cagayan de Oro City (13 April) -- MANUEL V. Pangilinan, chairman of PLDT and the Philippine Business for Social Progress (PBSP), was in Cagayan de Oro City recently to visit the Misamis Oriental General Comprehensive High School (MOGCHS), a recipient of the SMART Schools Program.

Pangilinan, along with other Smart and PLDT Foundation Inc. executives, interacted with information technology (IT) faculty and student-beneficiaries of the SMART Schools Computer Laboratory as part of assessing the impact of the program.

The program is a community service initiative implemented jointly by the PBSP, the Department of Education, and Microsoft’s Partners in Learning Program.

It promotes information and communications technology (ICT) in basic education through partnerships with public high schools, its officials and parents-teachers-community associations.

Specifically, it aims to provide public school teachers with Internet access through the PLDT group’s wide range of communications solutions, access to online content, and teacher training.

The Partners in Learning Program is part of Microsoft Corporation’s long-term commitment to empower and help teachers and students achieve their fullest potentials by providing greater access to the latest computer technologies and trainings.

The PBSP, on the other hand, is a private and non-profit foundation dedicated to promoting business sector commitment to social development.

Organized in 1970 by 50 of the country’s prominent business leaders, it has since grown to become the nation’s largest business-led social development foundation.

PLDT, Smart Communications Inc., and Microsoft Philippines Inc. are members of the foundation. (PBSP/PIA-MisOrOccCam i-Net/PIA-10) [top]
