Sky Cable chief operations officer March Ventosa and KCFI president Rina Lopez- Bautista pose for a photo with teachers and students of Nabuclod Elementary SchoolA school in Pampanga recently received a Gift of Knowledge package which included a brand-new television set and SKYdirect satellite dish.
The aftermath of the 6.1magnitude earthquake that rocked Pampanga in April left several institutions near the epicenter distressed and in need of support. One of them, Nabuclod Elementary School in Floridablanca, Pampanga, is a learning community attended by around 500 Aeta learners.
According to school principal Jocelyn Atun, four of the school’s buildings were severely damaged; one was beyond repair and can no longer be used.
“Yung walls lumobo,yung flooring nabitak,” she said.
Temporary learning spaces had to be set up in the school gym until their new building was ready.
True to their mission of being in the service of the Filipino, SKY and Knowledge Channel Foundation Inc., along with “TV Patrol,” helped Nabuclod by bringing a food truck that served hot meals and items from generous sponsors, and delivering and installing SKYdirect and a television set so the schoolchildren and teachers can easily watch Knowledge Channel.
SKYdirect, now in over one million homes nationwide, brings SKY’s superior brand of cable entertainment options to more areas beyond the urban centers via direct-to-home television technology. (Story/Photos by: Michael Ramos)
