According to official figures, there are 21.7 million students who enrolled for the upcoming school year and only a little over 500,000 electronic devices available to lend to teachers and public school students. While the opening of classes has been delayed to October, online learning during the pandemic may still be difficult to attain because of the lack of devices among students and schools.
“Power Mac Center is one with the education sector in upholding the need for education even in the face of COVID-19. We hope that through our UpTrade to Uplift program, the Filipino bayanihan spirit flourishes, helping us recover and move forward from this crisis. We invite everyone to lend a hand by donating their old devices, and together, we can elevate the lives of students in need,” said Joey Alvarez, Power Mac Center Director of Product Management, Marketing and Space Planning, in a press statement.
