Last school year, Singapore American School donated 85 computers, monitors and keyboards to help promote the rights of children in the Philippines. After months of working tirelessly to get through the bureaucratic red tape, the computers have finally arrived!
On May 30th, 2011 SFI handed over computers to 35 police precincts in Metro Manila. These computers will be placed in the Women and Children Protection Desks to be used as a much needed technical resource in handling the daily workload of the Women and Children Protection Desks.
During the ceremony at the Philippine National Police National Capital Region(PNP NCR) headquarters, SFI director, Lars Jorgensen, stressed the importance of investing into the protection of women and children to promote and support the country’s development. While some of the computers will be used in Stairway's IT training and in the Puerto Galera and Manila offices, a majority of them will be donated to other SFI partners, government and non-government. All will be in positions where they will benefit children in need.
Thank you, Singapore American School, Stairway Club, and others who have invested time and effort in this worthwhile endeavour.
