There is not a bit of doubt Dungguan Elementary School pupils will be most computer literate among all barrio public schools throughout the country. Thanks to Joe Campo whose heart is bigger than Texas.
DAUSA Board of Director Joe Campo of Freeport, Texas, pioneered the association’s Adopt-a-School Project and started the project in the barrio where he was born and raised.
Joe reported that a shipment of 13 PCs and books had been turned over to the school sometime in October this year.
Dungguan Elementary School is where Joe studied 1st and 2nd grade, many many years ago, when it only had a single classroom and one teacher for both grades.
During the past two years Joe and his wife Estela have been soliciting books/supplies from public schools in Freeport, Texas, shipping them to Danao City in crates, paying freight cost out of their own pocket.
In September 2000 during the 3rd DAUSA Medical-Educational, Joe had donated two desktop computers for Dungguan Elementary School, and also a brand-new printer and scanner for the Danao General Hospital.
