Security Bank Foundation equips Pangasinan school with computers for digital learning
Security Bank Foundation donated 30 brand new desktop computers to Pangasinan Universal Institute (PUI), ensuring that all its students have access to digitally-aided education.
One of the main goals of PUI is to keep its students up-to-date with technology. The challenge, however, was lack of sufficient funds to equip its computer laboratory with upgraded computer units. Security Bank Foundation responded to PUI’s call for support by donating brand new computers with higher specifications.
“We, at PUI, are so blessed that there are people with golden hearts who are willing to help our school,” conveyed by Dra. Ma. Ditas Fernandez, Academic Head of Pangasinan Universal Institute.
The Grade 5 students of PUI, who were the first to use the new computers, also expressed their gratitude and excitement. “On behalf of my schoolmates, we would like to extend our profound gratitude to Security Bank Foundation for donating thirty computers. Thank you for your support for young learners like us,” said by fifth grader Calvin Kyler Gapuz.
“Security Bank Foundation is committed to provide conducive learning facilities to Filipino students. With the donation of desktop computer sets, we hope that the Pangasinan Universal Institute will be further inspired to equip the students in the community with the technical skills that they need in order to be prepared for the demands of the 21st century,” said Melissa Aquino, Trustee of Security Bank Foundation.
Founded in 1920 at Dagupan, Pangasinan, PUI is one of the oldest Chinese schools in the Philippines. It caters to students from all walks of life where 16% of its student population are scholars.
