Globe #SeniorDigizen Goes to San Pedro, Laguna

Globe has been doing a series of #SeniorDigizen campaigns to provide digital know-how to senior citizens in the country. Their latest campaign brought them to San Pedro, Laguna. 

For 73 yrs old Delilah Rebutica, she shared that she finds it hard to get help from the young ones when she has questions about digital technology. Being a former teacher and civil servant, she is keen on being updated that's why she enjoyed Globe #SeniorDigizen learning session. 

"Saludo sa Globe kasi ito once in a lifetime na nakakapagturo kayo at ang seniors nabigyan ng pagkakataon na mapakinig at matuto. Kasi ang mga bata wala nang panahon (na magturo). So lahat busy. Kaya ito maganda," said Rebutica, after attending Globe's recent learning session in Brgy. Pacita 1, San Pedro, Laguna.

It was her first time to attend a training especially designed for seniors and found it a great brain exercise. "Medyo na-revive ang learnings. Magandang exercise sa nagkaka-edad." Afterwards, Rebutica also got interested in investing online via GCash's GInvest. 

Another participant, retired Air Force personnel Chris Rodriguez, 75, expressed gratitude for the enriching experience. "Marami akong natutunan because the resource persons very well articulated the topics assigned to them. I have basic knowledge, but my knowledge was enhanced because of this learning sessions." He also cited how much he learned about detecting scammers and phishing. 

Globe's learning session in Pacita was its first outside Metro Manila since the launch of the #SeniorDigizen campaign, which aims to equip the Filipino elderly with essential digital skills to help them participate meaningfully in an increasingly digitalized world. 

At the recent session, the seniors received a specially curated set of tutorials covering Smartphone 101, Cybersecurity, and how to use life-enabling apps such as GCash and KonsultaMD. These key topics were designed to empower seniors with practical knowledge on navigating the digital landscape safely and unlocking its numerous benefits. 

Globe's #SeniorDigizen campaign aligns with the company's push for digital inclusion, aiming to help seniors overcome apprehensions and misconceptions about digital technology while protecting them from online risks. The initiative kicked off in January with a successful learning session attended by 200 senior citizens in Quezon City. 

"We are committed to ensuring that no one is left behind in our digitalization journey," said Yoly Crisanto, Globe's Chief Sustainability and Corporate Communications Officer. "By equipping our seniors with essential digital skills, we empower them to unlock the vast opportunities and conveniences that technology offers, ultimately improving their quality of life."

Globe's efforts in digital literacy extend beyond the #SeniorDigizen campaign, with various initiatives aimed at promoting digital inclusion across diverse segments of society. As the nation continues its rapid digital transformation, the company remain dedicated to creating an inclusive digital future where everyone can thrive.
