AllHome Corporation, the Villar group’s chain of one-stop shops for home needs, is spearheading a project to donate school tablets to the Department of Education to be used by teachers of Las Pinas Science Highschool who would be facilitating online classes.

The firm said this project aims to help teachers continue to provide quality education despite the challenges posed upon by the pandemic.

“AllHome, through the help of our valued suppliers, took part in DepEd’s Adopt-a-School program which gives us, the private sector an opportunity to become dynamic and strong partners towards the noble goal of educating all Filipinos.” said Manuel B. Villar, Jr., Chairman of parent company AllValue Holdings Corporation.

With the pandemic forcing students to learn from their homes, teachers are finding it more difficult to practice what used to be an already challenging profession.

“With even big companies reeling from the effects of COVID-19, AllHome understands how the current situation affects Filipino families who are not equipped to adapt to these sudden changes, particularly those with children who are still in school,” said Villar.

Thus, he said AllHome would like to take part in bridging the gap between Filipino teachers and students who need access to technology in order to participate in distance learning programs.

This project is under the corporation’s CSR program entitled AllHome Builds— an initiative that aims to promote a sustainable lifestyle for all its stakeholders. AllHome Builds is a series of programs that help address today’s most relevant social and environmental issues.

“AllHome’s resilient performance amidst the pandemic as of the first half of 2020 made this effort possible. AllHome posted total revenues of P4.85 billion as of the first half of 2020, down only 4 percent from the same period last year despite the closure of stores during the Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ),” AllHome President Benjamarie Serrano said.

AllHome was created with the vision of improving Filipinos’ lives through providing complete solutions to home needs—construction, repair, maintenance, or simply beautifying one’s home.

Through its CSR program, AllHome Builds, the country’s only full-line home center continues to fulfill its role in improving the lives of Filipinos nationwide.  AllHome currently has 46 stores nationwide with the recent opening AllHome at Santiago City, Isabela. As AllHome continues to expand its reach within the Philippines, the retail giant is also looking forward to helping even more families all over the nation to lead better and more sustainable lives
