Manila, Philippines, October 1, 2022 – TELUS International Philippines (TIP), a leading digital customer experience (CX) innovator that designs, builds and delivers next-generation solutions for global and disruptive brands, including AI and content moderation, recently held its 15th annual TELUS Days of Giving (TDOG), supporting the Department of Education’s (DepEd) Brigada Eskwela program, where volunteers renovate and clean public schools for the upcoming school year. This is the eighth consecutive year TIP has supported the program.
Empowered by the company’s “we give where we live” philosophy, more than 1,250 volunteers, including TIP employees from the six TIP sites in Metro Manila and their family members, helped transform 52 classrooms at Tondo High School in Metro Manila in support of the Department of Education’s (DepEd) Brigada Eskwela program. Volunteers also built four temporary classrooms to address the school’s classroom shortage. “We owe the success of our TELUS Days of Giving to our team members who have shown their tremendous support and dedication, and who have invested tens of thousands of volunteer hours since 2014 to refurbish and renovate public schools across the region. By keeping the Filipino spirit of bayanihan alive, their presence today enabled us to transform Tondo High School into a vibrant, conducive learning environment through volunteer activities such as painting classrooms and hallways, painting mural designs in staircases, chair refurbishment, gardening and landscaping, and the construction of makeshift classrooms. This is a meaningful way for our team members to share their time and effort, in giving back to the communities where we live and work,” said Rajiv M. Dhand, Regional Vice-President for Asia Pacific at TELUS International.
Since 2014, TIP’s support of DepEd’s Brigada Eskwela program has helped more than 40,000 grade school and high school students across Metro Manila.
“With Filipino youth and students set to return to the classrooms in November 2022, we wanted to make sure schools are ready to welcome these students back by providing resources and our team member volunteers’ helping hand,” said Warren Tait, Brand, Marketing and Facilities Vice-President at TELUS International.
In addition to helping schools through DepEd’s Brigada Eskwela program, TIP is also committed to empower Filipino youth through company initiatives, including the company’s internship program for IT students in partnership with schools called ‘Code Your Career,’ and several CSR activities including the creation of e-learning modules, translating children’s books to local dialects, providing training on anti-bullying online, and raising funds for school kits and learning modules.
