Staying true to its commitment to bring innovative and high-performing smartphones to emerging markets, and providing support to Filipinos, one community at a time, premium smartphone and AIoT brand, TECNO Mobile, recently concluded its first couple of CSR activities in the Philippines for 2022. These events are part of TECNO’s ongoing CSR program, which kicked off in 2021 with the City of Manila, the Ina ng Lupang Pangako Parish in Payatas, and the scholars of Project Malasakit as its beneficiaries.
The project is in line with the launch campaign of POVA Neo, TECNO Mobile’s latest smartphone offering, which celebrates everyday heroes who power on with their day-to-day tasks in order to serve the community. For this year’s CSR activities, TECNO Mobile partnered with Grab PH, plus a few of the country’s up and coming content creators, to reach out to local communities once again, and inspire people and make a difference. Through this initiative the brand also hoped to motivate more people to participate in community outreach programs, and make them see that it isn’t about the size of the donation, but the sincerity to help others.
TECNO Mobile Gives Back to Grab PH Riders and Drivers
Grab PH riders and drivers have been lauded as true heroes of the pandemic over the last two years, helping make day-to-day life easier for thousands of Filipinos by making things accessible, even from home. These drivers face various challenges each day they spend on the road, but they never stop moving, and continue to provide their much-needed services to the community.
Recognizing their efforts, TECNO Mobile celebrates the everyday contributions of Grab PH by giving back to the company’s hardworking drivers and delivery riders. The meaningful collaboration between TECNO Mobile and Grab PH is reflective of the positive message that the POVA Neo campaign aims to impart.
A donation handover took place at the Grab PH Headquarters in Metro Manila on April 9, 2022 during Grab PH’s Papugay event, which the company mounts each quarter to show appreciation to, and recognize their outstanding drivers. As a beneficiary, Grab PH received 65 units of POVA Neo smartphones. This smartphone’s large battery capacity is perfect for the riders and drivers of Grab PH, and will be a big help as they navigate through the city, and provide excellent on-time service. The donation was received by Grab PH’s Papugay awardees, Grabfood rider Richard Aguilar, Grab driver Ricky Dalansay, Grab rider Arc Cabuello, and Grabfood rider Michael Sales.
