PMFTC TEACH CORNER project to benefit rural schools

While far-flung and remote rural schools receive little external interventions, PMFTC took the initiative to reach out to the needs. The long-walk while traversing rugged terrains, passing through rolling hills, and climbing mountains enhance PMFTCs excitement to implement the TEACH CORNER (Technology and Education Advancement for Children).

The project aims to establish educational multi-media stations within a school classroom that is composed of computers, printer, LCD projector, educational software program, TV set, DVD player, and educational DVDs. Through this, rural school children can be at par in terms of computer technology use with the global community.

The project proponent Universal Leaf Philippines (ULPI) identified ten (10) communities as program beneficiaries based on list of core tobacco growing communities. The actual beneficiaries became 18, 16 of which were given the complete set.

Teach Corner is a project under the Access to Education Program, a PMFTC CSR, in partnership with the Jaime V. Ongpin Foundation, Inc. IVAN P. LAYAG with reports from Marian Guille Rimpillo
