Dell Philippines strengthens their corporate social responsibilities as they continue supporting Childhope Asia Philippines, a non-government organization that provides welfare and education of children from poor families, with another grant to support and sustain Dell’s Powering the Possible initiative program.

The second grant was awarded through a simple ceremony minutes before the block screening of The Wolverine at Greenbelt 1 in Makati City. “The Childhope Board of Directors, staff, and the street children we assist are truly and deeply grateful for the deep commitment and substantial financial support of Dell to street children’s education, which will have a life-long impact on their development and well-being as well as contribution to society as a whole,” said Teresita L. Silva, president and executive director, Childhope Asia Philippines, Inc.
Richard Teo, President, Dell Philippines, handed over $19,000 grant to Childhope Asia as their continuous effort in educating these poor children. “We are very pleased to be able to extend funding support for Childhope Asia’s outreach program. Childhope Asia has been a strategic partner of Dell under the Powering the Possible program. Since last year, Dell has helped to equip a computer lab and mobile education vans with state-of-the-art technology so that the street children of Manila have access to these learning tools. Dell team members have also been active in providing skills training in computers as well as other creative activities like singing, dancing and the arts. The additional funding support is intended to enable further outreach so that the deployed technology can be fully utilized by the street children,” he said.
