PLDT Home, through the PLDT Smart Foundation (PSF), recently turned over to the Department of Education (DepEd) one thousand units of Home WiFi Prepaid. The units will enable public school teachers to experience a faster and more reliable internet connection as they conduct online classes, part of the DepEd’s blended learning strategy in these pandemic times.
The Home WiFi Prepaid units are part of the proceeds from the virtual concert, At Home with PLDT: No Learner Left Behind. The concert happened last July 2020 in support of the No Learner Left Behind movement. The campaign aims to maintain the quality education of students and youths affected by the pandemic. It features projects and partnerships positioned to deliver the needed tools and proper learning environments.
Moreover, the live-streamed concert featured famous singers and musical artists. The event benefits students, educators, and schools nationwide. Donations during the virtual event went through the PSF’s Paymaya and bank accounts.
Earlier, PLDT Home and PSF turned over five sets of School-in-a-Bag to the DepEd. The company also distributed Home WiFi Prepaid units and load cards. These are all part of the virtual concert’s proceeds. Additionally, the items went to deserving scholars of AHA Learning Center and Kris for Peace Organization, among others. More load cards and WiFi units will also arrive to other public schools in the coming months.
