Qualfon, a people-driven business process outsourcing (BPO) company and global provider of contact center services, has expanded its participation in “Brigada Eskwela,” an adopt-a-school program that funds and staffs everything from building repairs to special initiatives that support both teachers and students at elementary schools in Dumaguete, Philippines.

Supporting Brigada Eskwela for its second consecutive year, Qualfon doubled its sponsorship from one school to two schools this year, providing assistance to both Junob Elementary School and Batinguel Elementary School. Each school has over 1,000 students, and Qualfon volunteers are rolling out additional tutoring programs, delivering more building repairs, and providing increased clean-up efforts.

“Qualfon’s partnership with the Brigada Eskwela has been such a success that we’re now doing more. Through this program, we are making a very real and tangible impact in the community, and that’s why we decided to invest additional resources,” explained Steve Brown, Vice President and General Manager for Qualfon Philippines.

Qualfon pledged its support throughout the 2015-16 school year with various activities and programs for both schools. One program focuses on the children’s health. July is Nutrition Month, and Qualfon has helped promote the health and nutritional awareness campaign. Experts in nutrition facilitated a one-hour seminar for students, and Qualfon extended the activities with a sponsored healthy eating cooking competition.

Another program focuses on education. Throughout the school year, Qualfon employees offer free tutorial services to students at both schools for math, science, and English, so students can achieve their academic goals.

But efforts go beyond volunteer work; Qualfon also donated 15 gallons of paint, plywood, brushes, and nails to Junob Elementary School and also supported the school’s “clean and green drive” by spearheading monthly clean-up drives along with a variety of recycling programs.

“Most of these students come from low-income families that struggle to provide educational opportunities for their children. As a company focused on making people’s lives better, our staff and employees feel strongly about doing what we can to help our neighbors maintain their educational facility and launch a prosperous school year that empowers children to learn and grow,” said Brown.
