Empowering E-Learning With Genuine Licensing
The impact of the global coronavirus pandemic is so endearing that we might see a permanent shift in our educational setting and with this shift comes another problem – the additional cost of software licensing. In a country where 1/3 of the rural population lives in extreme poverty with earnings of less than $1 USD per day, it will take a year to afford just 1 genuine license, assuming that 100% of their earnings are allotted for the software and not for food and the needs of day to day living. When we consider the cost of simply staying alive, an impoverish Filipino can afford a genuine software in about… never.
Getting only 2 options – spend 10,000 PHP or piracy, the answer is a no-brainer for most. 90% of pirated software contains malicious files to exploit the user for the hacker’s financial gain. An average cost of a ransomware attack is 15,000 PHP – another cost we cannot allow anyone to shoulder, more so by a poor student simply trying to to get out of poverty through education. Today, E-learning is more vital than ever. The access to genuine software is paramount. This will be our social responsibility during these trying times.
WHAT WE CAN GIVE?
Free and permanent access to any genuine software needed. Even if the software is not on our store, just let us know what you need. We allot 10% of each payment that we receive or roughly about 30-50 licenses each month to this endeavor. Most common software requested are Google Workspace Educational Suite, Google Drive, Nitro PDF Editor, Microsoft Office, Microsoft Windows, Antivirus and WinRAR just to name a few.
WHO CAN WE HELP?
Teachers, Students, Public School Administrators and Nonprofit NGOs working to bring much needed genuine software to students in need.
HOW WE CAN HELP?
Just send us an email at [email protected] and let us know how we can help. Because of limited allocation, please be conscientious and ensure that you or the entity that you represent is truly in need.
HOW YOU CAN HELP?
We still consider this battle ours and won’t be accepting any donations. For the meantime, if you know someone we can help, kindly tell them about this initiative we are offering. Since inception, we never consumed our entire monthly allocation – this means that we always have 100% success rate of providing free genuine software to someone as long as they asked us for help. Help us help them by letting them know about this endeavor.
A total of 2,213 licenses has been donated to 14 Public Schools, 27 Organizations and 1,774 Teachers and Students for the past 738 days 22 hours 33 minutes.
