Lenovo Philippines recently partnered with the Alno-Kadoorie Elementary School (AKES) in La Trinidad, Benguet to give the school a much-needed facelift after the devastation brought about by Typhoon Ompong.

Lenovo Philippines General Manager Michael Ngan led a contingent of volunteers in restoring AKES. Over the two-day program, the team distributed school items for the students and supplied chairs and tables for the classrooms. They also repainted some of the rooms, the clinic, and 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.

Mark Binay-an, the head teacher of AKES, said that this is the first time that a private institution extended help to the school.

“We feel honored to be chosen as the beneficiary of Lenovo Philippines’ CSR activity. The company’s support will go a long way in helping our students in their educational journey. We hope that you will push this advocacy further and be able to reach out to more far-flung schools in the Philippines,” Binay-an said.

A leading tech provider in the consumer, commercial, and enterprise market, the company also donated two Lenovo laptops that can be used by faculty members when submitting vital documents and reports to the Department of Education-Division Office, as well as to incorporate digital technology in classroom learning.

AKES has a student population of over 300, most of whom are children of vegetable and flower growers.

The La Trinidad National High School-Alno Annex, which has a population of 300, also received school kits from Lenovo.

The schools are among the many institutions in distant areas of the province seeking assistance in upgrading their educational facilities.

Aside from the education sector, Lenovo looks to create an impact in other sectors of society by providing them with game-changing tech products that will help uplift their lives, and in a larger scale, assist in nation-building.
