Security Bank partners with Edukasyon.ph to provide quality e-learning programs.
On the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, classrooms were among many areas where disruption was immediately seen. All of a sudden, schools were closed, compelling the education sector to shift to online learning.
Security Bank has taken notice of the current situation of education in the country. While it endeavors to ensure the well-being of employees, customers, and all stakeholders, it also has started seeking out to fill the gap in education caused by the crisis.
Security Bank and its corporate social responsibility arm, Security Bank Foundation, Inc. (SBFI), advocate education as a long-term solution to poverty alleviation. The Foundation has been building classrooms, under their multi-award-winning Build a School, Build a Nation Program; training and developing teachers, and providing scholarships to deserving students under their “Scholars for Better Communities” Program.
“We focused our advocacy on education because we believe that education is the greatest equalizer in life. It will give every person the opportunity to succeed no matter what his or her social and economic background may be,” Chairman of SBFI Rafael F. Simpao, Jr said.
Even as classes were stopped due to COVID-19, Security Bank and Security Bank Foundation remain committed to its advocacy to provide quality education to all students. In particular, the Bank has been looking for partners who can provide quality alternative learning services to children and families alike. Among the partnerships the Bank has formed is with e-learning platforms 88Tuition and Edukasyon.ph.
Grades 11 and 12 students are not left behind. With SBFI’s partnership with Edukasyon.ph—the largest online platform in the Philippines that empowers students aged 13 to 23— the youth can make self-aware education decisions that lead to a fulfilling career and purposeful life.
Resources of Edukasyon.ph—include Online Education, Certificate Courses, and Skills Kit— enable students to find and take the paths best suited to their own interests, skills, and priorities.
“For Edukasyon.ph, ‘making the future less scary’ means reducing uncertainty, and we are fortunate and excited to work with Security Bank to promote opportunities that help upskill students and lead them toward their dream careers,” CEO and Founder of Edukasyon.ph Henry Motte-Munoz said.
Starting May 27, Security Bank cardholders and their dependents can access specialized courses—including computer-related, administration, self-development, and writing—from online institutions such as Udemy, Kadenze, and Google Garage via Edukasyon.ph.
SBFI also helped promote Edukasyon.ph’s platforms through the Bank’s Facebook page, e-mails sent to employees and partner schools as well as targeted communication to SBFI scholars.
For FVP and head of SB Cards Business Development and Operations Group Celeste Lim, Security Bank strongly believes that a better future lies with continuous and more access to learning and development, which platforms like Edukasyon.ph and 88tuition can supplement anytime and anywhere.
“With our partners, we make education easily available to everyone especially during these unprecedented times,” she added.
Security Bank encourages students and families to experience the power of e-learning through 88Tuition and Edukasyon.ph and experience world-class education right at the comforts of their homes.
“We want to support all Filipino families,” President and CEO of Security Bank Sanjiv Vohra said. “We collaborated with Singapore’s 88Tuition, and Edukasyon.ph to provide clients with world-class learning opportunities, and we extended the same opportunities to the broader community and public at large. We are optimistic that with these partnerships, together, we can get better,” he added.
