I have been supporting the advocacy for education and our friends from iAcademy has been instrumental in making dreams come true to some of our kababayans back home.
It’s also great to know that companies like Asian Terminals, Inc. are injecting more hope into our students’ dream so that they may strive to continue learning and honing their crafts by availing these scholarship programs.
Here’s the latest act of social responsibility from Asian Terminals, Inc.
Asian Terminals Incorporated (ATI) donated a sum of 3.213 million pesos to support the iACADEMY scholarship program.
Mitch M. Andaya, Vice President of Academics and Dean of the School of Computing, received the check on behalf of iACADEMY from ATI Executive Vice President Andrew Hoad on February 5, 2014.
“This donation goes a long way in supporting our goals to increase the enrollment in our Software Engineering, Game Development and Animation programs,” said Andaya. “iACADEMY Software Engineers are some of the most sought after programmers in the market today, and with this donation we hope to bring the best available freshmen and transferees into iACADEMY regardless of their ability to pay.”
“We are very grateful to ATI for this generous donation, and we hope that this is just the beginning of a long and fruitful partnership. ATI is a forward –looking organization that has come to support our goal to double the number of software engineers, this is an occupation where supply has never been able to meet demand, and with the direction towards content creation, and migration to the mobile platform, we can expect the demand for software engineers to continue to outpace supply.” said iACADEMY Chief Operating Officer Jose Morales.
This donation provided for future iACADEMY students is just one of ATI’s many Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives, which work to ensure a brighter future for its surrounding communities. ATI operates and manages the Manila South Harbor, the port of Batangas, and the port of General Santos.
iACADEMY is one of the country’s leading schools in the fields of Design and Computing. The iACADEMY philosophy is to prepare students for the needs of the industry and fill the gap in the market through programs designed and curated by industry practitioners and experienced members of the academic community
