Last December 9, employees of Epson Precision (Philippines), Inc., headed by their President Mr. Osamu Koshiishi, turned over a learning resource corner consisting of books in English, Math and Science to Kayumanggi Elementary School in Lipa City. A set of books and CDs on teaching values to children was also included for the use of both teachers and pupils.

The school is one of the least performing schools in the city. Its 2009-2010 National Achievement Test score is way below passing at 63.91%. Results have shown that pupils find difficulty in answering questions in the areas of Mathematics, English and Science thus the need for additional reference and instructional materials.

A 4-layer shelf housed the materials and this was purchased from a PBSP-assisted group in Quezon City, the Nabigla Construction and Manpower Development Cooperative.

Epson has donated a total of 1,730 kilos of ULABs to finance the books. The company also donated additional new books to supplement the Balik Baterya donation.
