DigiPlus joins DICT ‘Bayang Digital, Bagong Pilipinas’ NICT Month Celebration

DICT Asst. Secretary for Consumer Protection, Wilroy Ticzon; DICT Asst. Secretary for Legal Affairs, Renato Paraiso; and DICT Asst. Secretary for Infrastructure Management, Philip Varilla, join the BingoPlus Foundation team during the Bayang Digital, Bagong Pilipinas Expo.

DigiPlus Interactive Corp., through its social development arm BingoPlus Foundation, supports the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT)’s vision of creating a digitally advanced and resilient Philippines.

Further reinforcing its commitment to responsible digitalization, the company recently supported the DICT Expo: Bayang Digital, Bagong Pilipinas held last June 3 at the Philippine International Convention Center in Pasay City.

The Expo was part of a series of activities in celebration of the National Information and Communications Technology (ICT) Month, held June of every year, in accordance with Proclamation No. 1521, series of 2008.

This year’s National ICT Month, aptly themed, “Bayang Digital ang Bagong Pilipinas,” emphasized the importance of leveraging ICT and other means to provide efficient government services, enhance cyber safety, and extend limitless opportunities for Filipinos. Expo attendees include personalities from national government agencies, academe, and industry leaders in Information Technology (IT), Communications, and Technology.

FutureSmart Scholarships and the Coding for Kids program of BingoPlus Foundation aim to nurture the next generation of Filipino tech talents.

Earlier this year, DigiPlus Interactive, through the BingoPlus Foundation, announced its plan to allocate more than Php100 million for its advocacies to promote a digitally-advanced and resilient Philippines. Among its advocacy pillars are Technology Education and Responsible Digitalization, done in partnership with the public and private sector.

These programs include FutureSmart Scholarships and The PLUS Factor program to bridge quality education and leadership development with high-potential young tech talents. This National ICT Month, the Foundation also launched the Coding for Kids program to inject fun in STEM learning and inspire the youth to pursue an interest in tech.

Efforts to promote Responsible Digitalization include the Digi Buddy volunteer program to help equip target sectors with the right tools and behaviors as Filipino netizens and a Responsible Gaming campaign to teach the right habits when playing games online, encouraging Filipinos to multiply the fun by keeping it safe in the digital world.

Digiplus Interactive and BingoPlus Foundation will continue to celebrate National ICT month with the DICT by joining its culminating activity – a TechTalk Series with youth leaders, titled “Tech-Ready Youth: Empowering Responsible Skills”.
