2024 promises to be another productive year for BDO Foundation as it partners anew with Huawei Philippines as part of a shared advocacy to implement education-related initiatives.
The corporate social responsibility arm of BDO Unibank and the global leader in information and communications technology infrastructure and smart devices agreed to co-fund the development of financial literacy videos, which will form part of an ongoing financial education program for the Philippine National Police.
The partners also agreed to finance the production of a second batch of curriculum-based videos on early numeracy, which will be used in the teaching of Mathematics and Science to Grade One pupils. Through the aforementioned projects, the partners aim to enhance the economic well-being of police personnel, help improve basic education and continue contributing to the government’s efforts to empower Filipino educators and learners.
The memorandum of agreement was recently signed by (from left) BDO Foundation trustee Evelyn Salagubang, trustee Lucy Co Dy and president Mario Deriquito as well as Huawei Philippines public affairs and communications department director Hu Weihua and public affairs manager Liang Jiahao. The learning resources on personal finance and early numeracy are the latest initiatives to be undertaken by BDO Foundation and Huawei Philippines, which previously joined forces for programs that benefitted public school students and teachers.
