Smart Communities in Education
We believe in investing in our youth's future. And we leverage on our technologies, businesses, and people to helping shape education.
Recognizing the importance of education, SMART, together with parent firm PLDT and the PLDT-Smart Foundation , lined up several major community partnership initiatives in the field of education, particularly in promoting computer and Internet literacy. Combined with the spirit of employee volunteerism, we are "broadbanding" education -- the "smart" way.
The Smart Schools Program* is the flagship community service initiative of SMART that promotes Information and Communications Technology (ICT) in basic education through an innovative, three-pronged approach: the set up of computer labs with broadband Internet connection, computer training of teachers, and local content generation for the school community.
