Epson Philippines collabs with DepEd for Gift of Brightness program

Epson Philippines has partnered with the Philippines’ Department of Education’s (DepEd) Adopt-a-School Program to provide Epson printers and projectors to public schools, to help address the shortage of resources as well as help in the delivery of better quality education to public schools in the country, particularly in the poverty-stricken provinces and areas.

DepEd nominated the beneficiary schools from each targeted area based on performance, with DepEd’s Bureau of Educational Assessment (BFA) providing a list of top ranking primary and secondary schools from 2015 to 2016. From this list, Epson selected schools located across the country and within Epson’s service areas, to help facilitate new user training and visits with the schools’ faculty members.



Epson will be benefitting fifteen schools with this batch of donations, bringing the number of beneficiary schools from the Gift of Brightness programme to a total of thirty since the program started in 2014. 

Fourteen schools were selected from DepEd’s list of Top Performing Schools for School year 2015-2016, with an additional school directly chosen by Epson Philippines to complete the number of recipients for the second batch.  

Each beneficiary school will be receiving an Epson Technology package that includes Epson Ink Tank System printers – the L220 Multifunction Color Printers and L-Series Inks; the Epson WorkForce M100 Single Function Monochrome Printers and Inks; an LQ310 Dot Matrix Printer and SIDM Ribbons, Labelworks LW400 Label Printers and ribbons, portable EB-S31 projectors and a document camera.

“Schools that already received a Technology package from Epson in the past years have relayed to us how much the products helped make teaching and studying exciting and enriching. These stories have inspired us to continue equipping schools that do not have the financial capacity to acquire them. We would also include a 1-year supply of inks and ribbons along with the equipment, to ensure that these products will help out in the students’ assignments and other school requirements,” explains Epson Philippines head of Marcom and PR Donna V. Ferro.

The recipients include schools from:
Ilagan, Isabela, Calapan, Mindoro, Balanga, Bataan, Lapu-Lapu,Cebu, Roxas, Capiz,  Talisay, Cebu, Zamboanga City, General Santos, South Cotabato,  Butuan, Agusan Del Norte, Baguio City (CAR), Valenzuela City, NCR, Paranaque City, NCR, Pasay City, NCR, Quezon City, NCR, and Las Pinas City, NCR.

“The Epson Gift of Brightness program is Epson’s way of supporting the development of youth and contributing towards the education sector.  This is an ongoing advocacy effort, and we are always looking for like-minded partners, groups and organizations to help us select schools from all over the country. For this year, DepEd made it possible for us to access top-ranking schools who truly need the resources we can offer.  It is our hope that their students will be able to continue towards a brighter future with the help of technology that can make their learning experience even more fruitful,” concludes Ms. Ferro.
