Provincial Officials headed by Governor Dr. Melchor Daguines Diclas have recently handed over a donation of 1,209 tablets to the Schools Division Office of Benguet.
The tablets which are intended for indigent students are poised to aid learning methodologies and empower the basic education learners in their studies.
Governor Diclas expressed heartfelt gratitude to the Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation (PAGCOR) for their donation that made the procurement of the tablets possible. Acknowledging Congressman Eric Go Yap who sourced out the funds from PAGCOR, Governor Diclas emphasized the collaborative effort that made this initiative a reality.
Of the P10,998,000.00 donation, Governor Diclas highlighted that there is a remaining amount exceeding P4.3 million which will be earmarked for the subsequent procurement of additional tablets to extend the benefits of digital learning tools to even more students in the province.
Governor Diclas, in collaboration with Congressman Yap, reiterated their firm commitment in supporting and improving education in the province.
In their endeavors, construction of school facilities has been one of the major priorities to ensure that students have conducive environments for learning. Recently, the Provincial LGU has also recently hired Guidance Associates to promote the psychosocial welfare of students.
