PLDT turns over Home WiFi Prepaid units to DepEd for teachers’ online classes

PLDT Home, through the PLDT Smart Foundation (PSF), recently turned over to the Department of Education (DepEd) one thousand units of Home WiFi Prepaid to 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.

“We are happy to assist the DepEd and its teachers in conducting online classes and facilitating learning among students amid the restrictions brought about by the current pandemic. Our support to the country’s dedicated and hardworking teachers has always been profound. Our gratitude to them, immeasurable. The PLDT Home WiFi Prepaid will definitely help them manage digital education and reliably connect with their students,” said PSF President Ma. Esther O. Santos.

DepEd Undersecretary Tonisito Umali said, “We really appreciate these donations from PLDT. Thank you! The Home WiFi Prepaid will be a great help to teachers in their online classes. These units will be distributed to them as soon as possible and we will immediately send to PLDT the list of schools actually receiving the units.” 

The Home WiFi Prepaid units form part of the proceeds from the PLDT Home-sponsored virtual concert, At Home with PLDT: No Learner Left Behind, held in July last year. PLDT Home supports the No Learner Left Behind movement which aims to maintain quality education of students and youths affected by the pandemic with projects and partnerships positioned to deliver the needed tools and proper learning environments.

Featuring famous singers and musical artists, the livestreamed concert was conducted for the benefit of students, educators, and schools nationwide so that No Learner is Left Behind. Donations during the virtual event were coursed 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 and distributed Home WiFi Prepaid units and load cards, also part of the virtual concert’s proceeds, to deserving scholars of AHA Learning Center and Kris for Peace Organization, among others. More load cards and WiFi units will likewise be donated to other public schools in the coming months.
