In line with its commitment to making a difference in Philippine communities, Teleperformance (TP), a company that offers outsourced omnichannel customer experience management, partnered with Kythe Foundation for its Virtual Day Camp.
Kickstarting its 25th anniversary celebration in the Philippines, Teleperformance sponsored the celebration which aimed to provide psycho-social support for the children of Kythe. Kythe kids were partnered with TP volunteers and enjoyed a fun program that included animal yoga exercises and storytelling, a safari hunt, trivia games, and even a Talentadong Kythe Kids showcase and Costume Contest.
The activity was done through Citizen of the World, Teleperformance’s charitable initiative that helps the world’s most vulnerable infants and children meet their basic survival needs and, ultimately, reach their individual potential. Kythe Foundation has been a partner organization of Citizen of the World since 2008.
“At Teleperformance, we truly believe in the importance of giving back and in providing our employees with the avenues to make an impact in communities,” said Jeffrey Johnson, SVP, Human Capital Resource Management, Teleperformance Philippines. “As we celebrate our 25th year in the Philippines, we look forward to working with long-standing partners like Kythe Foundation to create more programs like this Virtual Day Camp that will help provide not only for the physical but the psychological and social needs of children, who are among the most affected by the ongoing pandemic.”
Citizen of the World
“The Teleperformance Citizen of the World program has enabled Kythe to carry out the organization’s mission of providing opportunities for children with cancer to learn, play and grow even while confined in the hospital. TP Citizen of the World is one of the few corporate foundations who understand the value of providing psychosocial support to pediatric cancer patients,” said Maria Fatima Garcia-Lorenzo, co-founder and executive director, Kythe Foundation, Inc.
Aside from organizing day camps and theme parties, Citizen of the World also provides monthly allowances for the Kythe Child Life Coordinators, who provide psychosocial support to children with cancer and other chronic illness and their families.
TP’s Citizen of the World has also provided medical assistance through the Kythe Adopt-a-Patient Program, which provides funds for necessary medical procedures, medicines, laboratory, and other expenses with the hope of providing the child-patient a continuing healing process.
