For the students of Inigan Elementary School in Rodriguez, Rizal, education is worth crossing a river for. Every day, they make the perilous journey across the river to get to their poorly equipped classrooms to fulfill their dreams of a brighter future.
The young girls and boys of Inigan Elementary have been a constant source of inspiration for Brother Philippines. The business and home tech solutions company has been at the side of the students and the school since 2012, donating school supplies and equipment to help promote meaningful instruction and interaction within the classroom. Fun and engaging lessons on creating a better, greener environment are also provided as part of Brother’s global advocacy.
Last December 8, 2016, Brother Philippines once again renewed its support for the Inigan community this December 2016 with a fresh supply of ICT tools and school necessities, as well as a Lakbay Aral trip to the Museo Pambata and Fort Santiago for a day of fun and learning with the company’s employees.
“The whole Brother Philippines team has been looking forward to this special activity for the diligent students and inspiring teachers from Inigan Elementary School,” said Glenn Hocson, Brother Philippines President. “Their collective passion for learning is truly admirable, and a force that inspires us to develop more products and programs that can help realize dreams in the future.”
Brother Philippines’ commitment to Inigan Elementary School has resulted in various educational assistance activities, since 2012, and annual educational tours.
To date, Brother has helped hundreds of students by providing school supplies, a good number of teachers with ICT tools that can enable further research and learning, and the school with its very own generator set (the school has no formal energy subscription) and a public-address system that come in handy when staging school programs and activities.
“The grateful smiles of teachers and students are more than enough to keep us going,” added Glenn Hocson. “These experiences that some of us take for granted mean the world to them. As long as we can help, we’ll always be at the side of Inigan Elementary School.”
