Epson Philippines has teamed up with Save the Children Philippines, the world’s leading independent children’s organization, to support the latter’s Safe Schools Common Approach.
Epson donated 24 printers and 90 bottles of inks to 24 schools, 8,830 learner beneficiaries, and 336 teacher beneficiaries in the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (BARMM).
Safe Schools Common Approach is a partnership between Save the Children and the BARMM to ensure the fulfillment of children’s rights during situations of armed conflict and other emergencies, including calamities and the COVID-19 pandemic. This program is an all-inclusive, all-hazards approach to keeping children safe in and around schools.
“Learning materials have been vital for both face-to-face and distance learning setups,” said Eduardo Bonoan, General Manager of Marketing Division at Epson Philippines. “This is why Epson Philippines has decided that providing printing equipment would be the best way to support more children’s right to education. Through this pledge, we hope to empower young Filipinos to overcome adversity and pursue their dreams.”
