To equip the students with learning resources in preparation for the new learning modalities such as online classes in the upcoming school year, a local security firm donated 50 units of internet modulator-demodulator (modem) to the La Filipina National High School (LFNHS) in Tagum City through the Adopt-a-School Program.

According to Lilibeth Abe-abe, the general manager of Blackfighter Security Agency Inc., the agency’s key vision is to help the community in their own way aside from strengthening their personnel and staff in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“It is also our social responsibility to the community, especially to the students, that is why the management decided to extend our assistance that can aid the students’ learning in the new normal,” Abe-abe said during the Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) signing.

The learnings of student-recipients, according to her, would hopefully advance with the technology and urge more stakeholders to lend a hand.

“We hope that this little act of giving encourage some individuals and companies to do their share,” she added.

Moreover, LFNHS Adopt-a-School Coordinator Joan Lanciola said the agency’s generous donation is the first step to meet at least 25 to 50 percent of students whom they can provide with the learning resources.

“Although this is our school’s first time to be partnering with Blackfighter Security Agency, the support is really overwhelming and we are happy in receiving it. This is not only our accomplishment as members of the Brigada Eskwela team, but also of the whole school and the Division of Tagum City,” Lanciola said in the MOA signing.

In addition to this, LFNHS Brigada Eskwela Coordinator Cherry Ann Nicolas emphasized the role of the different stakeholders in the community as the anticipated partners that could provide more learning materials for students.

“Unlike before when we promoted ‘bayanihan’ by cleaning and beautifying the school’s environment for conducive learning, the best we can do now is to find stakeholders as a school-partner,” Nicolas said in an interview with the Harbinger staff.
