I-Remit, Incorporated (I-Remit), the country`s largest non-bank, Filipino owned remittance company is strengthening its campaign to raise social awareness, generate public support and mobilize resources for children`s education in the Philippines. Having an alliance with Synergeia Foundation for its drive, I-Remit raised funds totaling to P 516,540, through its corporate social responsibility campaign, for P. Guevara Elementary School in Tondo, Manila. The fund-raising activity aims to support the reading proficiency program for grade one students.
