A staunch advocate of education, Lenovo—a global leader in the PC market and smart devices industry, carries out various initiatives to inspire knowledge and cultivate minds.
Lenovo Philippines regularly collaborates with academic institutions to provide teachers and students the tools they need to push through with their educational journey despite adversities such as natural calamities, as well as the lack of financial and material resources.
For its annual outreach program, Lenovo Philippines recently partnered with the Alno-Kadoorie Elementary School (AKES) to give the school its much-needed facelift after the devastation brought about by Typhoon Ompong—a powerful tropical cyclone that hit Northern Luzon provinces in 2018. In particular, the typhoon brought about heavy rains, flash floods, and landslides in Baguio City and Benguet province.
Lenovo Philippines’ General Manager Michael Ngan led a contingent of Lenovo volunteers to restore AKES, which is located in the remote barangay of Alno in La Trinidad, Benguet. Over the two-day program, the team distributed school items for the students and supplied chairs and tables for its classrooms. They also re-painted some of the rooms, including the clinic as well as the Physical Education room.
“At Lenovo, we believe that education plays a major role in uplifting our society. To ensure that this program is meaningful, we coordinated closely with the school to identify their most immediate and relevant needs. We hope that our actions have helped AKES create a more conducive learning environment and empower the students to better appreciate their education,” Ngan said.
