Dell Phillippines Supports ChildHope Asia Philippines with a $45,000 Grant


Seeing “poverty” just every corner of the metro saddens me. So many kids up there in the streets reaching out to us to ask for food or coins that we might have is so disappointing.
While a lot of people are more privileged (just like me) who wasn’t deprived of education, there’s a lot of kids out there who needs to be educated. I know there’s so much our government can do with it, but I know there’s a lot of institutions out there ready to extend a hand on one of society’s biggest problem to date-EDUCATION.

Good thing there’s still a space for that from the people from DELL PHILIPPINES. Dell Philippines is one of the leading provider of technology solutions, services and support, now partnered with CHILDHOPE ASIA PHILIPPINES.


Last February 12, 2013 I am one of the few bloggers invited to be part of the unveiling of Dell Philippines’ “Powering the Possible” grant that provide 620 children with access to technology across Metro Manila.

To facilitate its outreach and protection/education program, the charity is aided by mobile education vans with street educators that are deployed to 18 locations daily where street children are commonly found-in parks or on sidewalks of urban centers –to teach children there.



The core of this partnerships is to provide the undeserved youth and educators with access to technology and serve as catalyst for lifelong learning and career readiness.



At the unveiling I was also able to see the computer lab set-up with Dell Desktops to provide digital learning and basic computer literacy classes to 120 selected street children brought to the charity’s premises and to the areas in Metro Manila where CHAP operates.



Here’s what Ms.Teresita L. Silva President and Executive Director of CHAP has to say about this very promising opportunity,”We’re grateful for Dell’s support in our efforts to defend the rights of street children by providing them with learning opportunities and knowledge that can help protect them from the vulnerabilities of life on the street. The education and skills they acquire will also go a long way in preparing them for a productive members of the community”.



At the unveiling, Dell Philippines President Richard Teo was also present during the event and said “our initiatives to empower youth by closing the technology gap and providing training in information and communications technology skills are focused on improving, enhancing, and jump-starting learning for life. By putting technology to work for undeserved communities, we aim to help young people discover new possibilities, change their lives and unleash their true potential”
I hope that private with Dell Philippines’ initiative, more private companies will also do the same thing with our underprivileged brothers and sister who are in need of help.

 Mr. Richard Teo President, Dell Philippines

And the lucky receiver of this grant is ChildHope Asia Philippines which works with the underprivileged street children and out-of-school-youth in the Metro Manila to give them equal opportunities for learning through several programs, including basic literacy and numeracy, alternative learning system basic education, computer literacy, as well as life skills, values and primary health education.

  5. First of all I want to say superb blog! I had a quick question that I'd like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to writing. I've had trouble clearing
    my mind in getting my thoughts out. I do enjoy writing however it just seems like the
    first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be lost just trying to figure out how
    to begin. Any ideas or hints? Cheers!
