     The country’s leading wireless services provider Smart Communications Inc. turned over two new personal computer units to Jagna Municipal Library and Information Center on May 27.

      The donation is part of the company’s corporate social responsibility and commitment in strengthening community service initiatives on various fronts.

      The generous act likewise hinted the start of a partnership to be forged between the local government unit (LGU) of Jagna and Smart in terms of education and information technology (IT).

      “Although information can still be read in books in the library, other equally important facts can now be accessed through the internet,” according to Lawyer Jane Paredes, Smart public affairs manager for Visayas and Mindanao.

      “Your Municipal Library can now be a collaborator with Jagna Central Elementary School (JCES) of this town through our Doon Po sa Amin (DPSA) Learning Challenge which will soon be launched in Bohol,” Paredes added.

       She further informed that DPSA is a SMART Schools Program to generate rich local content for the World Wide Web such as posting colorful stories, legends, local history and anything about the community using Internet technologies.

      Once DPSA starts to operate in July this year, JCES and the Municipal Library can be associates in the integration of information and communications technology in education.

      The DPSA Learning Challenge also strengthens the “Internet for All” advocacy of SMART, which hopes to create an environment that will make the internet relevant and widely accessible to more and more Jagnaanons all over the globe.

      Vice Mayor Teofisto Pagar Sr., who represented Mayor Exuperio Lloren, personally received the two computer units from Paredes as assisted in the turn-over by Smart Senior Supervisor Edgardo Albay, Engr. Marino Romerde of Smart- Tagbilaran City, Public Affairs Staff Lourdes Gocotano and writer/documentor Amy Salgados.

      Avel Acedo, a Jagnaanon who now works for Smart-Makati City main office was also instrumental in the realization of the said computers.

      Jagna Municipal Librarian-in-charge Catalino Berro wrote a project proposal to Smart a year ago and Acedo pursued it.

      To express gratitude, Jagna’s 6th Sangguniang Bayan Member and Public Information Committee Chairman Alberto Café is sponsoring a resolution to thank Smart and Acedo.
