Anna Abola (center), Marketing Communications Manager of Lenovo Philippines, with the UP GRAINS officers.

 

Lenovo, a global leader in PC and smart devices, recently renewed its support to the youth by providing additional laptop grants to the University of the Philippines Genetic Researchers and Agricultural Innovators Society (UP GRAINS), a youth organization that was awarded the Outstanding Tech Visionary citation by the company at this year’s Ten Accomplished Youth Organizations (TAYO) Awards.

 

The Outstanding Tech Visionary citation given by Lenovo at the TAYO Awards recognizes the youth organization with the most meaningful project that addresses key social issues through the innovative use of technology. Together with the award, the winning organization was also provided with Lenovo units.

 

Now bolstering its support to the youth organization for their community-based projects, the company is providing UP GRAINS once again devices in the form of brand new YOGA 520 and IdeaPad 320 laptops.

 

“As a leader in the technological industry, Lenovo injects excitement and vibrancy by driving innovation that exceeds expectations and creates meaningful impact. It suffices to say, that we are in an excellent position to help promote the benefits of technology to the public. Through our partnership with TAYO Awards Foundation, we get to know all these brilliant youth organizations, and together, we could create a huge impact in addressing the country’s concerns through technology. It is inspiring to see young people make an effort to build a better community, and it is our pleasure to contribute in this, “said Michael Ngan, Country General Manager, Lenovo Philippines.

 

Formed in 2014 by Bachelor of Science in Agricultural Biotechnology (BSABT) students at the
University of Philippines Los Baños, UP GRAINS is a service-oriented academic organization that promotes agriculture through various activities involving agricultural biotechnology.

 

Their Lakbioteknolohiya project is an information and workshop series held in high schools and
communities where agriculture is the main source of income. The lessons taught here are directly taken from UPLB’s curriculum which features hands-on exercises on urban farming and
agricultural biotechnology experiments with the intent of improving agricultural production and
maintain quality agro-environments.

 

“Since our inception, we have been using our personal laptops for our advocacy projects and activities and these new devices from Lenovo changed that. Now that UP GRAINS has its own set of devices, all our members can have access to laptops especially when out on the field,” said John Albert Caraan, Project Head of Lakbioteknolohiya.

 

The Search for Ten Accomplished Youth Organizations (TAYO) Awards is a project of the TAYO Awards Foundation, Inc., the country’s premier award-giving body that recognizes and supports the outstanding contributions of youth organizations in the country.

 

Lenovo has been the exclusive technology partner of the TAYO Awards since 2012.
