Give hope to a child

Help buy a learning tablet for a child every time you shop

Shop for a cause! Every time you use your HSBC Credit Card at department stores, computer stores and bookstores, you inch your way to donating a learning tablet for a child in need.

*The Alpabasa Reading Program is a play-based, child-centered reading program, systematically designed to make reading and writing in Filipino fun and easy and equips children to read in Filipino. It lays its foundations on a deep understanding of how each child’s brain learns and processes how to read. It is systematically designed to target reading skills in a way that motivates children to play with language (build, manipulate, apply) and challenges teachers to think outside the box to make reading fun. Through action songs and movement-based activities, children are motivated to play with the Filipino language and discover its richness–and it doesn’t stop there! The Alpabasa Program ensures that children strengthen what they have previously learned through fluency-based exercises, geared toward the success of each child.
