Prestone Philippines, together with J&T Express, donated laptops to nine recipients of the Anak Ng Mekaniko Scholarship Program.
“Three years ago, we made a promise to these nine scholars that Prestone will always be here to help them reach their dreams through education,” said Monique Gonzales, Brand Manager of Prestone Philippines. “And in these uncertain times, we understand that safety must come above all else. As they start their academic year through distance learning, we hope that these laptops will be an instrument that can help them in their studies.”
The laptops come as additional benefits of the program along with tuition for the four-year course and a monthly allowance. The devices were recently delivered by J&T Express to the nine scholars, who are now on their third year at STI Colleges in their respective towns and provinces.
“As a delivery service provider, J&T Express believes in the power of Bayanihan,” said Zoe Chi, VP of J&T Express Philippines. “May this simple act of helping Prestone deliver these important learning tools inspire the nine Anak ng Mekaniko scholars as they journey towards their academic success despite the current challenges posedby the pandemic.”
Prestone initiated the scholarship program in 2017 as a way to give back to the local auto mechanics worldwide. The nine scholars are:
- Edmajea Aguinaldo from Makati City
- Anna Dela Cruz from Camarines Sur
- Harvey Plazo from Camarines Sur
- Christian Diamante from Misamis Oriental
- Aulinda Buban from Antipolo City
- Keith Perez from Antipolo City
- Joselito Peñada from Leyte
- Melver Masangkay from Batangas
- Jaime Abesamis from Davao City
