This is page is for any qualified Philippine school to submit your proposal


please add another school below the example school Kalibo II thank you.

== MySchool's contact info ==Hello. My name is Marc Bernard Siguenza. My mother, Proserfina Siguenza, a retiree, is doing some giving-back-to-the-community work and is currently helping provide for much needed books to a school which is located in Pasil, Cebu City, Philippines. Im wondering if you could also assist in supplying that school with 20 computers to start with as they don’t have any computers for the children to practice with.The computers can be placed in the library for all the students to share. You may reach Proserfina Siguenza at 15 Elizabeth Pond, Cebu City, 6000 Philippines.email: prosemsiguenza@yahoo.com Or through telephone no. 63-032-2536282(landline). This is a long shot but it doesn’t hurt to try. Also please check Olango island, Cebu if you can include it.

Thanks and more power.

MySchool's Proposal

We are requesting laptop organization for 100 computers to be given to Kalibo Elementary School ll, Kalibo, Aklan, Philippines. It being the only Special Education Center in the Province of Aklan which caters children with special needs such as visually impaired, hearing impaired, intellectual disabled and fast learners.

These 100 computers which will be given to our school, the Kalibo Elem. School ll will be used by our children with special needs for the start of school year on 1 Jun 2008 thru the end of March 2009.

Our school which hopes to be the recipient of these 100 computers could become a model school in our place and first of its kind in the entire Philippines. The children with special needs including those who are fast learners will soon become more likely to succeed in their future lives.

We are also ready and willing to cooperate with the Don Bosco Technical College.

MySchool's epilogue

Notes from me --Chief Mike 00:02, 15 March 2008 (EDT)

I don't have that much formal training in network-admin, PHP, MOODLE, and the rest of LAMPS but, I have many years experience troubleshooting everything from radar systems to hydraulic propeller systems shipwise to CNC (robotics) to photography landwise, I could cont on about spacewise but that's enough :)
PS: I've partially setup a School Server and we can store the kids files on it if/after we need to send on the Laptops to whom ever want's them after the school year is over

Notes from Project Manager Wenmi March 15, 2008

I really appreciate the school in Kalibo to be one of the pilot school. If we go Pilot, let's start at the small area. I need your skills Mike, so keep communicating.
