Umapad Elementary School goes digital with computer tablets from Bantay Bata and Regional Network Group Cebu
Bantay Bata 163 and ABSCBN Regional Network Group (RNG) Cebu recently turned over seven units of tablet computers to representatives of Umapad Elementary School in Mandaue City.
The devices, which were purchased using the proceeds of the DYAB Kapamilya Run held in June 2015, will be used for the school’s research and other activities. The turnover was led by ABS-CBN Visayas Cluster head Veneranda Sy.
Aside from the gadgets, the Bantay Bata team and MOR disc jockeys prepared games and gave away loot bags to the Umapad Elementary School students. Snacks from Monde Nissin and hot porridge were also distributed to 1,210 attendees.
The shooting of ABS-CBN’s “Thank You for Your Love” Christmas station ID added fun to the event.
Umapad Elementary School is located near Marcelo Fernan Bridge, a few meters away from the dumpsite of Mandaue City; some of the school’s students scavenge in the dumpsite during their free time in order to earn extra income.
School principal Nancy Lucenas, the students and faculty members expressed gratitude to Bantay Bata 163 and RNG Cebu for the donations and giveaways.
