Epson Philippines has partnered with Save the Children Philippines, the largest independent children’s charity in the world, on the guiding idea that “education may pave the road to a brighter future.”
Epson Philippines provided 24 printers and 90 bottles of ink to 24 schools, 8,830 student recipients, and 336 teacher recipients in the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region of Muslim Mindanao in support of Save the Children’s Safe Schools Common Approach (BARMM). Save the Children Philippines took care to properly choose the academic institutions in the area in need of technical support.
Save the Children and the BARMM have partnered to create the Safe Schools Common Approach in order to guarantee the protection of children’s rights in times of armed conflict and other emergencies, including natural disasters and the COVID-19 pandemic. This program takes a comprehensive, all-risks approach to ensuring the safety of kids in and around schools. Through inclusive education and technology that supports justice, peace, and general development for all current and future generations of the Bangsamoro people, it seeks to bridge the digital gap and community divisions.
Empowerment through Education
Epson Philippines has promised to donate printers to a number of schools that would benefit as part of its commitment to assisting in the creation of a better future for the next generation. Children’s educational materials will be produced using the donated Epson printers.
“Learning materials have been vital for both face-to-face and distance learning setups,” said Eduardo Bonoan, General Manager of Marketing Division at Epson Philippines. “This is why Epson Philippines
hasdecided that providing printing equipment would be the best way to support more children’s right to education. Through this pledge, we hope to empower young Filipinos to overcome adversity and pursue their dreams.”
Leading children’s charity organization Save the Children. This foundation has been working to safeguard and help underprivileged children for the last forty years.
