BPO firm Sitel Philippines gave its full support to the annual educational campaign, “My Dream in a Shoebox” of TeamAsia and the IT and Business Process Association of the Philippines (IBPAP).
The outreach program aims to provide less fortunate Filipino children with much-needed school supplies. Sitel associates donated shoeboxes filled with notebooks, pens, pencils, paper, and crayons, among many others.
“We were more than happy to help in our own small way, to build a brighter future for our less fortunate kids,” said Nino Raphael Ang, senior HR generalist at Sitel Group.
“All our sites generously donated 1,500 boxes of school supplies from our associates. And to make an even bigger impact, Sitel matched these donations, doubling the beneficiaries to 3,000 children.”
The school supplies-filled shoeboxes were equitably divided and distributed among the Aeta community in Zambales, the displaced children of war-torn Marawi, and various public schools in Sitel’s provincial communities.
