Students in Batan Island, Batanes now have access to Knowledge Channel (KCh) as SKY and Knowledge Channel Foundation Inc. (KCFI) donated educational tools to four schools in Luzon’s northernmost province.

Basco Central, Diptan, Mahatao and Ivana elementary schools in Batan will benefit from KCh’s rich educational material via SKY’s directto-home (DTH) TV service, SKYdirect. The schools are part of the pool of beneficiary schools that will receive SKYdirect Prepaid kits this year as determined by SKYdirect and KCFI.

March Ventosa, SKY Cable Corporation chief operating officer, said in an interview: “Education is an identified need in our society today and SKY has a unique opportunity to provide access to content together with Knowledge Channel. I wish that we’d be able to reach out to as many schools as possible in the Philippines. And there would be a time that every kid in the country, if we count 10 years from now, will say ‘I first learned something through the Knowledge Channel content.’”  

According to KCFI founder and president Rina Lopez Bautista, new technologies have enabled KCh’s educational materials to reach more areas through SKY’s facilities.

“SKYdirect is a very important platform for us because it allows us to be anywhere 
in the Philippines through a small satellite dish and a box. Students, teachers and even communities can learn so much from the Knowledge Channel,” Lopez-Bautista said.

Bags with school supplies were also distributed courtesy of ABS-CBN Lingkod Kapamilya Foundation Inc.

SKY furthers KCh’s thrust of literacy by sharing its enriching content to more areas using the extensive reach of SKYdirect and SKYcable.

Today, KCh is viewed by over five million learners and more than 50,000 teachers and principals in 64 provinces. Over the years, SKYcable has provided more than 1,000 schools with access to KCh and its learning materials.
