Thousands of TELUS International Philippines team members share their caring culture by rehabilitating Quezon City schools

 

Manila, Philippines - TELUS International Philippines, a leading provider of digitally-enabled customer experience and business process solutions, once again extended its leadership and support to Brigada Eskwela through the TELUS Days of Giving on May 12, 2018.

Now its fifth year of participation with Brigada Eskwela, TELUS International Philippines inspired more than 2,800 volunteers to volunteer 16,800 hours to rehabilitate Kamuning Elementary School and Quezon City High School during the powerful, one-day volunteer event. This year’s TELUS Days of Giving is one of the biggest to date, with team members renovating and refurbishing 11 school buildings, 66 classrooms, and more than 3,250 chairs.

“During these five years of giving of our team members’ hearts and hands to Brigada Eskwela, we have provided 54,000 volunteer hours to six schools, where we have meaningfully impacted more than 41,000 students, including the 6,000 students who attend Kamuning Elementary School and Quezon City High School,” shared Jeffrey Puritt, President and CEO of TELUS International.

Recognized with numerous awards, including Asia CEO Awards’ CSR Company of 2017, TELUS International Philippines held its first TELUS Days of Giving in 2007. What started with team members building homes for Gawad Kalinga (GK) in what is now known as GK’s TELUS Village eventually expanded its reach and impact through partnerships with various organizations, including Bantay Bata, Bantay Kalikasan, Virlanie Foundation, and Hands On Manila.
