GILAS in Lipa City
Lipa City is one of the more progressive cities in the Philippines, about one and a half hours away from Manila. Lipa City is also a nice place to live, as they have a cooler climate compared to Manila because of its high elevation.
When GILAS started in 2005, there are already a couple of schools that are already connected to the Internet, courtesy of the Youth Tech project of Ayala Foundation. And in 2006, the Pinagtongulan National High School was connected to the Internet courtesy of private sector donation and Innove Communications for its one year free and unlimited Internet access.
For this year, GILAS has targetted to complete the connection in all the public high schools of Lipa City. Maybe next month it will already happen. Watch out!
