The students of Educational Research and Development Assistance, Samahan ng Mga Batang Nananambakan are the latest beneficiary of this project.

Zone V Camera Club contributed laptops to help the pupils succeed in school and in life, and PLDT Home offered a 400Mbps broadband connection for the following two years. The ERDA computer room has been renovated by Zone V Camera Club and PLDT Home to improve the learning environment. The walls and tables have also been painted. A mural was painted on one wall to show how students in Tondo, Manila, navigate modern life and digital learning.

The Tondo-based beneficiary ERDA SaBaNa Foundation has been helping underprivileged kids receive a well-rounded education by offering them leadership and life skills training, as well as school supplies, bags, and uniforms. Since its founding in 1974, ERDA has helped more than 800,000 kids with their academic and practical education.

These young people are members of the "digital native" generation, yet they lack access to computers at home or adequate workspace to focus on research for their schoolwork. They now have access to a wealth of knowledge thanks to PLDT Home's connections, which will help them with their academic endeavors and sate their curiosity about the world around them. Additionally, this will enable them to download and upload educational videos more quickly and without lag.

Assumption Development Foundation (ADF) in Sapang Palay, Bulacan was chosen by Zone V Camera Club as the first recipient of their flagship project, Images of H.O.P.E (Helping Others Prosper and Excel) last year. To collect money and create new online learning hubs for impoverished Filipino students, Zone V Camera Club sells printed images taken by its members. PLDT Home supplies the broadband connection.
