US, other partners donate P10-M worth of laptops, tablets to PH schools

The United States and its Philippine partners gave PHP10 million worth of learning gadgets to support the country, the US Embassy in Manila said.

At least 100 “school-in-a-bag” kits were turned over to selected schools.

Each kit contains a laptop computer, 10 tablets with one terabyte of memory each, and pocket Wi-Fi preloaded with PHP500 worth of internet access.

“Through the Smart School-in-a-Bag initiative, we will be able to advance digital literacy amid and beyond the Covid-19 pandemic, especially in remote areas that lack access to technology,” USAID Philippines Acting Deputy Mission Director Brandon Miller said.

“We will continue to forge partnerships with the private sector, local government units, and local communities so that every child has access to a quality education,” he added.

The project is in partnership with Smart Communications and Philippine Business for Social Progress.

“We thank our partners, USAID, Smart Communications, and PBSP for this undertaking. Truly, bayanihan is very much alive in DepEd even as we face very difficult challenges to make sure that learning will continue,” DepEd Undersecretary Diosdado San Antonio said.

“We recognize the value of harnessing the generosity of our partners and stakeholders in improving learning outcomes of our learners, especially in Last Mile Schools,” he added.

The kits will be distributed by the Department of Education.
