Provision of Broadband Prepaid WiFi for Beneficiaries in Region 4A

Given the current needs of students in the new learning modalities, the Foundation decided to use the cash incentive it received from the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) in the purchase of Broadband Prepaid WIFI with 500 prepaid load cards.

Open Heart Foundation satisfactorily complied with the requirements in the implementation of Community-based programs and services for Children and Youth and their families in Region IV-A. The DSWD-Standards Bureau awarded this incentive to Open Heart as one of the Social Work and Development Agencies (SWDA) that passed the Level 2 accreditation.

The Level 2 accreditation means that a SWDA is compliant to mandatory and higher set of indicators required for its work areas and will be issued an accreditation certificate valid for five (5) years.

The said cash incentive was used to buy prepaid broadband which were given to all senior high school and college beneficiaries of Open Heart in Binan Laguna, Carmona Cavite, GMA Cavite, Silang Cavite and Rodriguez Rizal, who have difficulty accessing an internet connection. On October 18, 2021 a total of 31 beneficiaries received the Broadband prepaid WIFI. The recipients were grateful, for according to them this will be very useful in their online class.
