Help a child become an “e.Studyante”with P&G promo packs
School children in the Philippines face many challenges; sometimes, even the simplewalk to school in the morning can be an arduous journey. Students cross rivers, traversemountain peaks, even go through battlegrounds just to go to school. And when theyarrive, they are faced with meager resources – overcrowded classrooms, the lack ofbooks and school supplies – which all make for an uninspiring learning environment.
That is why starting on its 76th year, Procter and Gamble (P&G) Philippines is setting outto make these students’ journey more worthwhile. Taking its commitment to educationto the next level, P&G will provide technology and connectivity to Filipino studentsnationwide with its e.Studyante program.
Along with partner Smart Communications, Inc. (Smart) and Synergeia Foundation, thee.Studyante program will provide kids from selected schools with an XO Laptop fromthe One Laptop per Child (OLPC) Association. The XO laptop is a rugged, low-power,connected laptop especially designed to make learning more engaging and more fun forstudents.
Students can use their laptops not just to learn but to share and connect witheach other, with their communities and with the world – helping them all becomean “e.Studyante.”
The goal is simple: Give out 1,000,000 laptops in time for P&G’s 100th year. And youcan help.
