Dell and CJFI Philippines Partnership
The Dell’s Powering the Possible for Youth Learning Program has provided its global strategic partners the improved capacity and the power to do more in extending the programs and services to the target clientele.
Dell’s computer products and IT solutions are important components of the program in which Dell’s strategic partners such as Children’s Joy Foundation, Inc. have become effective in imparting IT education to target clientele.
CJFI’s formal partnership with Dell started in 2013 when Dell awarded a grant to initially establish the computer laboratories of the CJFI residential center in Quezon City and CJFI Main Office in Davao City.
In August 2014, Dell awarded CJFI another grant for five more computer laboratories installed in other five CJFI Child Care Residential Homes and a Mobile Computer Laboratory that has been serving victims of typhoon Haiyan in Tacloban City and Leyte Province. These areas in the Philippines were badly hit by typhoon Haiyan that destroyed worth billions of properties and claimed thousands of lives either killed or missing.
The said grant increased CJFI’s effectiveness in reaching out to more marginal Filipino children and youth in the countryside. It has made an impact to thousands of children and youths across all educational levels from elementary, high school and college that completed the computer classes in the computer laboratories that were provided by Dell. Such opportunity has made them productive in their undertakings as students.
CJFI performance strengthens partnership with Dell
With its remarkable performance, Dell awarded CJFI another grant last September 2015 amplifying its scope in terms of social outreach through computer literacy.
The said grant aims to give opportunities to destitute children from all grade levels including the out-of-school youth across the country by providing another state-of-the-art computer laboratory at CJFI Davao residential care center and two mobile computer laboratories for Luzon and Mindanao areas.
Indeed, Dell’s unstoppable commitment to “put technology and expertise to work” has been helping millions of young lives under the care of CJFI, giving them hope and molding them into becoming productive and computer-literate individuals.
