We visited Children's Joy Foundation last week at Project 8 Quezon City. As Dell donated computer labs for youth to cater underprivileged communities to access technology. As you see in US computer labs and Library were almost present in every street.
So everybody's access to technology and learning were so easy. This program facilitate education and empower youth through education and literacy. If this thing happen to our country slavery and corruption will be minimized.
As the foundation assist abandoned, neglected and surrendered children in the country much like an orphanage supported by Volunteers and Christians lead by Pastor Quiboloy. I learned that Dell doesn't only donates hardware. But also suggest to its employees to donate each time by doing a volunteering outreach programs to teach this kids on its off time.
So Dell President Richard Teo said that its a very Systematic program that supports Charity where its employees work and live. Dell give backs 1% of its profit by doing this charity.
“We are proud to be able to partner with Children’s Joy Foundation to support its efforts to empower youth through computer literacy. This program will focus on providing opportunities to youth in marginalized communities who have the eagerness, interest and aptitude but are limited by circumstances and resources to fulfill their passions.
We have set up a few computer labs at CJFI Centers in the Philippines and Quezon City is just one of them. We expect to bring the benefits of the program to even more children over time. Our strategic Dell Giving program targets foundations focused on youth learning, children cancer, disaster relief and social entrepreneurship.
Dell contributes one percent of its after-tax profits to non-profit organizations doing work in the communities where our employees and customers live and work,” by Dell President Mr Teo
The lab set up will benefit to at least 1210 children and youth sheltered in the foundation. Some of the beneficiaries are kids of single moms, abandoned kids from province and kids of a low income laborers. For more info visit www.childrensjoyfoundation.org
