Global technology and innovation leader Lenovo conducted its annual outreach activity to the students of the Alno-Kadoorie Elementary School (AKES) in La Trinidad, Benguet.
Executives, technology experts, and product managers from Lenovo, alongside staff members from sponsor organization Jollibee, traded in their laptops and workstations for pencils, crayons, and food ingredients as they taught the children lessons in arts and crafts and cooking. They also gave career advice to senior high school students to help them learn about the corporate world.
A staunch advocate of education and the youth, Lenovo undertakes various initiatives and partnerships with institutions to bolster learning. Most of these efforts come in the form of outreach activities, cash, and technology grants to partner schools.
“We value education highly at Lenovo as we believe it can go a long way in uplifting the nation from social ills such as poverty and malnutrition. Lenovo has never wavered in its support for education and the youth, and we hope that these actions help students in their education and in their roles as tomorrow’s leaders,” said Michael Ngan, president and general manager of Lenovo Philippines.
During the company’s first outreach at AKES last year, Lenovo gave the school a much-needed facelift after the devastation of Typhoon Ompong. The Lenovo team repainted some of the rooms, including the clinic and the Physical Education room, distributed school items to students, and turned over chairs and tables to be used in the classrooms.
AKES has a student population of over 300, most of whom are children of vegetable and flower growers.
Lenovo strives to help alleviate poverty and raise the levels of education in the Philippines. – Press release
