CLARK FREEPORT, Pampanga — Converge ICT Solutions co-founder and chief executive officer Dennis Anthony Uy on Thursday (September 29) donated 100 learning tablets to Aeta learners in an education project in Clark’s Sacobia sub-zone.

“We at Converge reiterate our commitment to help raise the quality of education in the country, but most especially here in Pampanga, because this is where the heart of Converge is. Pampanga is our home,” Uy said in the program held for the Aeta Pagsasarili project, consisting of pre-school education, cacao planting for chocolate bar making, and the trading post Ayta Na.

The support of Converge is part of an agreement with Mabalacat City Mayor Cris Garbo.
