PLDT Employees Credit Cooperative (PECCI) partners with PLDT wireless subsidiary Smart Communications (Smart) as they turned over a School-in-a-Bag in Pamampangin Elementary School in Lopez, Quezon. The campaign paved the way for School-in-a-Bag, an innovative learning tool, to be brought to the next level. It is the first School-in-a-Bag unit given by PECCI and fourth by Smart.

The Smart School-in-a-Bag contains a projector, DVD player, pocket Wifi, solar panels, and LED TV, a teacher’s laptop, and student tablets injected with digital educational platforms. 

“Our partnership with Smart, through the School-in-a-Bag, is our way of going beyond work and doing what we can to provide better quality education to underserved communities. In PECCI, we believe that technology is an enabler that allows every generation to embrace and adapt in the digital age,” PECCI Director and Social Community Development Oversight Committee Head Miguel Dawis said.

The School-in-a-Bag turnover initiative aims to alleviate the inadequacies in the Philippine education system and assist those who are in need. With this in mind, PECCI continuously reaches out to the underserved communities, especially those in the far-flung areas.
