Globe Telecom partnered with Gawad Kalinga to provide reliable and low-cost Internet for Gawad Kalinga village residents in Parañaque, Sta. Rosa, Laguna and Imus, Cavite last December 10.
Through the partnership, Gawad Kalinga village residents can access Globe’s KonekTayo WiFi for as low as P15 per day, without any need to spend for devices, monthly fees or modems. KonekTayo WiFi will be deployed across various locations in the country which include Quezon City, Laguna, Trece Martires, Cavite, Iloilo City, Bayawan City, Negros Oriental and Cagayan de Oro City.
This is among Globe’s mission to sustain and develop communities by providing Internet access for underprivileged Filipinos who have zero or limited access to basic connectivity that is already a daily need due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We thank Globe and KonekTayo WiFi for this partnership that puts community support and nation-building through digital transformation and inclusion,” said Luis Oquiñena, Gawad Kalinga Chairman.
