Committed to supporting and empowering the education sector and marginalized Filipino students, Sun Life Asia Service Centre-Philippines (ASCP) implemented a corporate social responsibility campaign that aims to aid learners and teachers with the tools they need to do well in school and help empower students to pursue a bright future.
Called “SOS 4 Face2Face,” Sun Life ASCP, a company providing contact center, business processing, IT, and Investment Research services to Sun Life’s global businesses with locations in India and the Philippines, recently held a fundraising program by providing schools and office supplies, health kits and many more to public schools, to them in preparing for back-to-school face to face classes.
The company supported over 19,000 beneficiary students from selected public schools.
“Education opens up the learners’ vital skills such as good decision-making, interpersonal skills, and confidence in life, among others. Sun Life ASCP also understands that not every family and child has the means to support their studies, that is why we are extending our hands to support the public education sector and the students,” shared Aldo Almera, VP and site head, Sun Life ASCP.
The fundraising also provided 450 sets of COVID-19 prevention kits to students of Pundaquit Elementary School in San Antonio, Zambales. Each kit consists of face masks, isopropyl alcohol, vitamins, and school supplies.
Sun Life ASCP turned over their pre-owned office chairs, tables, clinic bed, and medicine cabinet equipment to Maricaban Elementary School in Pasay. The company also donated office chairs and tables to the students of Daanghari Elementary School in Taguig for a better learning experience in the new normal.
Through SOS 4 Face2Face CSR Program, Sun Life ASCP will continue to be committed to supporting public education in the Philippines.
