On 15th June 2014, the Service-Learning Program (SLP) of the Arrupe Office of Social Formation, in collaboration with the Computer Engineering (CoE) Department of the School of Engineering and Architecture (SEA), and the University Information Technology Office (UITO), turned over two sets of five computer units, equipped with computer-aided software, to the Gawad Kalinga (GK)-Sibol schools in Gravahan, Matina, as well as in San Nicolas, Matina Aplaya. The computers were donated by the UITO headed by its director, Fr. Ramon Prudencio “Denny” Toledo, SJ.
The turnover is the final phase of the SLP partnership between the Arrupe Office and the CoE department of School Year (SY) 2013-2014. The software installed in these computers is an interactive program developed by the CoE students who underwent service-learning through the Arrupe Office. This software is designed as a tool to be used in the teaching materials for the GK-Sibol schools.
The turnover ceremony was attended by Ms. Femie Faller and Mr. Marcelino Severino III of SLP, and Mr. Karl Anthony Ebol, the Community Engagement Office (CEO), all from the Arrupe Office, as well as Engr. Ed Faller and Engr. Ed Descalsota of CoE. (by Arrupe Communications & Advocacy)
