BUILDING THE
FUTURE BY
REACHING OUT

DynaQuest has always prided itself on being active when it
comes to civic activities. Espousing the value of being socially
responsible, the DynaQuest family has participated in
various charitable endeavors, by working with
organizations that share its advocacy.

My Dream in a Shoe Box is a collaborative outreach campaign by Information Technology and Business Process Association of the Philippines and Team Asia, which was created to help children in need by providing them shoe boxes filled with school supplies.

Headed by TeamAsia and the IBPAP, this annual educational donation campaign aims to provide every child in need of school supplies, in which DynaQuest is an active participant.

Humanility is a non-profit charity organization that aims to help street children and orphans have productive lives. DynaQuest President Randy Knutson, is one of the Board Directors, while Country Director Gail Macapagal is the Philippine Representative of the Humanility Project. They have worked with the organization to aid children in need and collectively have donated and procured computer learning centers in both cities and rural areas that helped countless children learn the basics of computer programming, which will transform their lives and have a brighter future ahead.

DynaQuest Basketball Court Ribbon Cutting and Humanility Games

Once again with the Humanility Project, DynaQuest returned at Bogo, Cebu to lead the grand unveiling and blessing of the new Basketball Court.

The event began with a solemn prayer, followed by the welcome remarks of Bryan Thomas, Humanility’s Co-Founder and Vice President.

A cash donation of one hundred thousand pesos was also given, to help the Humanility children of Bogo, Cebu. The day was filled with a hearty meal, and a friendship basketball game at the newly unveiled court, wherein jerseys was also donated to the kids.

The day was capped with an awarding ceremony, and closing prayers to give thanks for the successful event.

2018

DynaQuest has always been advocates of instilling computer literacy to children, as we believe that this holds the key to a bright future. When Randy Knutson and Gail Macapagal went to Bogo, Cebu last 2017 to see the status of the local Humanility Shelter, they found out that Bogo is severely lacking in computer facilities, let alone a stable internet and electricity connection. This is why together with the DynaQuest team, they decided to act and do something about it.

Formal Turnover of Makati and Cebu Learning Centers

And as a way of acting on our advocacy, we have solidified our partnership with Humanility and formally turned over the Computer Learning Centers in Makati and Bogo, Cebu, to help the children have a place to access computers and learn.

We provided 9 computers for the learning center in Makati, and another 22 units for the learning center at Bogo, Cebu.

Success Stories

Our efforts with the computer learning center got its reward, when one of our scholars in the Makati Shelter became a class valedictorian, while three boys from the Bogo, Cebu shelter passed their exams with honors that makes them qualified high school students.

B2CI Free Workshop & Blockchain Scholarship

As part of our corporate social responsibility, DynaQuest, together with some key business partners held the Bacolod Blockchain Initiative or B2CI workshop, where we spread awareness about the emergence of Blockchain and related concepts, as well as its importance in the near future on key industries for free.

The Bacolod Blockchain Initiative were attended by over 70 members of the academe, Department of Information and Communications Technology leaders, and Bacolod LGUs.

To follow up on our Blockchain initiative, we have decided to sponsor 30 scholars to participate on our Blockchain Accelerator Course, to learn concepts such as Hyperledger, and the integration of Blockchain to various industries.

Hair & Makeup Livelihood Workshop

We also conducted a Hair and Makeup Career Workshop for young women and mothers.

An event solely dedicated to teaching these women acquire new skills, which will aid them in achieving a sustainable livelihood that will help them have a fulfilling and productive lives.

Medical & Dental Mission

Afterwards, we also held a medical and dental mission to provide holistic medical care to those who need it the most.

We believe that helping people is not something you just do once, which is why our DynaQuest family makes sure that all our endeavors and all our efforts are towards to providing a sustainable benefit for our community.

Trip to Inflatable Island & Paint My Love Campaign

Of course, DynaQuest also sets up fun and exciting activities for the kids. Which is why on August of 2018, the DynaQuest Team and the kids from the Humanility Foundation went to Inflatable Island in Subic for a fun-filled day.

Inflatable Island was one of the top wishes of the kids, which is why we went here to make their dreams come true.

Later in the year, DynaQuest also launched the 2nd Paint My Love Art Workshop for the Humanility Children, wherein we instilled the love for the arts, and allow them to express their creativity via their drawings and paintings.

THE HIGHLIGHTS OF OUR CHARITABLE ENDEAVORS

valed

The capstone of our efforts is when we found out that through our computer learning centers, three boys managed to pass their equivalency exams, with honors. This qualified them to become high school students. The three boys, who are still on Grade 1 despite being in their teens already, was incessantly bullied by their classmates. But with the help of the computer learning center, they managed to catch up and study, which resulted to them passing their exam. It is in that moment we knew, that all of our efforts were worth it.

Another act that we are proud of, is when one of DynaQuest's sponsored student in the Humanility Makati Shelter was declared class valedictorian. To express how proud we are, we rewarded her with a laptop computer that can she can use for her future studies, as well as to show her classmates that she is worth emulating. This was also to send a message to other children that studying hard will be rewarded.

But it doesn’t end there; the DynaQuest family continued to provide constant support to the computer learning centers in both Makati and Bogo, Cebu, through repair and maintenance, as well as shouldering the bills for the internet, air conditioning, and electricity connection that will help kids achieve a better future by providing a conducive place for learning and education.

2017

The DynaQuest Family celebrates its Back to School Program, and gave away school supplies, toiletries, hygiene kits, first aid kits, food groceries, and cash donations to the students of the Humanility Makati Shelter.

We know going back to school is hard if you don’t have the things you need, which is why we provided black shoes and rubber shoes that the children can use every day when going to class.

A Symbolic Gesture

One of the highlights of our activities, is when we had a symbolic turnover of one computer to our learning centers. Our aim is to change and improve the lives of the children through computer literacy, and thus it was installed to the Humanility Makati Shelter’s computer learning center.

A Shared Birthday Celebration

The DynaQuest family ingrains the value of giving, not only to its staff, but to its respective family members as well. One of the children of our management team decided to celebrate his 9th birthday at the Makati shelter and share his special day. It was a day of fun games, and excitement, which was ended with a storytelling for the kids.

Paint My Love

We celebrate the love for the arts, and had a “Paint my Love Art Workshop” with the Humanility Children that will help instill the value of the arts, and encourage the creativity of the kids.

A Starry Christmas at Star City

For our Christmas Celebration, the DynaQuest employees and their families, together with the Humanility Makati Shelter street children, also with their families, held our annual Christmas party at the Star City amusement park, where we had a day filled with fun rides and games.
