TECNO Mobile helping the real-life heroes

This is in light of the brand's way of giving back to the community following the successful release of its mobile lineups in the Philippines such as the Spark 7 Series, Pova 2 gaming phone, and the CAMON 17 series. The company has been a part of the country's journey of overcoming obstacles and learning to find the bright side of every scenario. Moreover, the campaign's choice of local heroes matches perfectly with TECNO Mobile's CAMON 17 brand ambassador, actor Chris Evans, in both his on-screen and real-life heroism.

Three partner beneficiaries have represented the church, government, and the civic groups namely the Ina ng Lupang Pangako Parish, Project Malasakit, and Manila City through the Office of Mayor Isko Moreno. Each of the beneficiaries has its separate hand-over ceremonies.

The first one was from the Ina ng Lupang Panago Parish area, located at Barangay Payatas, the leaders of the church and volunteers have given out educational and livelihood opportunities for the urban poor community that resides in the area which was also supported by donations from different sources.

Jason Liang, the brand's Limited Marketing Director for the Philippines, has donated an amount of PHP 100,000, including 10 smartphones to the parish to be distributed to hardworking church volunteers that organize and facilitate activities such as community pantries and counseling webinars, and online masses.

Rev. Fr. Peter Hequillan, CM received has accepted the donations.

The second ceremony handover had taken place at Tikme Dine Restaurant, Quezon City. But this time it was for the Project Malasakit group. The civic organization is a scholarship program that helps Filipino children by giving them proper education to let them change their lives for a better future.

Again, the mobile phone company has shared their 30 smartphones and PHP 100,000 cash to the Project Malasakit team received by its founder Kara David and her two scholars Lillian Ambrocio and Mauwe Liwanag.

On August 6, 2021, the last donation was handover at Mayor Isko Moreno Office in the Manila City Hall.

The Mayor is noted for his community engagement, which is assisted by his team of volunteer employees who answer community hotlines, respond to reports, coordinate projects like the latest vaccine deployment, and work at public schools as teachers. The community heroes got 50 smartphones from TECNO Mobile as well as an amount of PHP 200,000 which was received by Mayor Isko. The program was headed by Lindsay Guan, CEO together with the brand's executives. 

The company's CSR campaign was kicked off with an online photo exhibit taken by top local photographers using the CAMON 17 smartphones. 

A selfie advocacy campaign was also formed, urging people to participate by uploading their own selfies for a good cause. Anyone may join by just sharing a selfie with their advocacy on Facebook. The photo must include the hashtags #TECNOMobileCares, #CtheBestofYou, and #SelfieAdvocacy, as well as a caption with a brief description of the advocacy. Representatives from TECNO Mobile will choose the best photo and caption, and the winner will receive a CAMON 17 smartphone.
