The bag contains school supplies like pencils, erasers, sharpeners, crayons, pad paper and notebooks.

The company’s 60,000 employees may also donate Bags of Hope.

Director Rizalino Jose T. Rosales of the Department of Education Region III commended the campaign that supports the agency’s “mission to provide quality, equitable, culture-based and complete basic education to all our learners.”

Rosales said the “Give a Bag of Hope” program helps Filipino schoolchildren have a better chance at pursuing their education by addressing a major cause of school dropouts—lack of school supplies.

Earlier in the day, when Convergys Clark’s new site was inaugurated, employees distributed Bags of Hope to Aeta students of Nabuclod and Camachile Elementary Schools in Floridablanca, Pampanga province.

Convergys Clark site director Soc Bautista said employees volunteered in the Convergys Community Action Network to create a bigger impact in the places where they live and work.
