Manila officials donate tablets to UdM students
Manila City Mayor Francisco ‘Isko Moreno’ Domagoso and Vice Mayor Honey Lacuna-Pangan donated about 1,010 tablets worth P8.8 million to Universidad de Manila (UdM) students who are among the “poorest of the poor.”
Domagoso said that the funds used for the purchase of Samsung Galaxy Tab A tablets were sourced from his modeling and talent fees from various private companies.
The Mayor and the Vice Mayor turned over the devices to UdM President Malou Tiquia on Thursday, September 24, in order to assist students from poverty-stricken families to cope with the prevailing blended distance learning mode amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Alam ko po ang hirap na dinaranas ng mga mag-aaral, lalo na mga mahihirap na nasa ating mga pampublikong paaralan,” Domagoso said in a statement.
“Kaya’t inihahandog po namin ito ni Vice Mayor Honey Lacuna sa mga poorest of the poor na mag-aaral ng UdM. Hangad po namin silang matulungan sa kanilang online classes ngayong may blended distance learning mode dahil sa pandemya dulot ng COVID-19 pandemic,” the Mayor added.
The Mayor was able to accumulate funds to purchase the tablet devices from modeling contracts from the following firms:
- Chooks to Go
- Powerhouse Tools
- IAMWORLDWIDE Coffee
- Cosmic Technologies Inc.
- Better Option Pharmaceutical
The UdM management led by University President Tiquia will handle the distribution to make sure that the students from the “poorest of the poor” will be given tablet devices.
