An island barangay school in Coron, Palawan was the lucky recipient of educational television equipment provided by the Malampaya Foundation, a long-time partner and supporter of the Knowledge Channel and its mission to empower learners through media and technology.
The teacher training and equipment turnover event took place at the Canipo Elementary School early this month in the isolated sitio of Coron. The school was also given a photo-voltaic or solar panel power system by Malampaya Foundation with which to power its new electronic educational TV equipment.
The island’s welcoming committee of 237 learners and 7 teachers were visibly excited by the visit of Malampaya Foundation Executive Director Karen Agabin and Knowledge Channel executives Doris Nuval and Vin Conmigo and Sky Direct’s direct-to-home satellite service installers.
