Transcom’s child care center in the Philippines organizes its first summer camp

Equality and Diversity is one of the key focus areas in Transcom’s CSR program, Transcom Cares.

As a way of supporting working mothers, Transcom Philippines site in Pasig has a child care center for our employees’ children.

The Child Care Center is very appreciated by our working moms, as the quotes below illustrate:

“I would not have survived the emotional and maternal challenge of being a mom working at Transcom if it were not for the Daycare. Thankfully the Daycare has served as a great partner for parents in keeping our children holistically imbued with Christian values, with fun, games and laughter.” Christine R Alvarez, Corporate Trainer

 

“How fortunate am I, as a mom to be able to bring my child to work and have her meet new friends as well as the numerous “titas” and “titos” who dote on her. Every day I look forward to my daughter’s stories of her fun-filled day.” Anna May R Villaruz, Senior Manager Organizational Development

During the spring, the Child Care staff and parent volunteers organized the center’s first summer camp which included activities like arts and crafts, guitar lessons and theatre arts.

On May 30, the children got together in a culminating activity celebrating their new-found and developed talents. It was a delight for parents, seeing their children on stage; hosting, singing, dancing and performing. The children obviously enjoyed their time in the spotlight, but it was the parents with their faces full off pride that brought home some life-lasting memories that night.

Though this was our first summer camp, we received very good feedback and hopefully this will be a yearly activity at our childcare center.
