SKY IN THE COMMUNITY
SKY has been a part of the lives of Filipinos not only in their homes where it brings entertainment, but also in their hearts as it strives to reach out to communities throughout the country to bring hope when it is most needed.
SKY began to enrich the lives of Filipinos beyond entertainment content with the SKY Foundation, founded in 1996. This would later become Knowledge Channel Foundation, Inc., an organization that has helped uplift the lives of Filipinos through innovative ways of teaching children. With SKY's power to bring the new methods of teaching, the Foundation soon saw the birth of Knowledge Channel, which would air programs initially acquired from the United States, Canada, and Europe, and later, locally produced programs based on the curriculum prescribed by the Department of Education.
SKY and Knowledge Channel Foundation, Inc. continue to be partners in delivering hope for a better life to public school children around the country with the installation of SKY's new direct-to-home satellite television service, SKYdirect, which carried the channel's educational programs.
With the country has been perennially hit by natural calamities, SKY has reached out to Filipinos, especially in rural areas where streams of information are usually obstructed by damaged infrastructure. In the wake of Yolanda, SKY and its employees brought back smiles to affected Filipinos by way of entertainment, news and information, connectivity, and some financial aid.
As SKY continues to expand its reach nationwide, it will be able to serve more Filipinos.
In SKY, we are given the opportunity to enrich the lives of Filipinos everyday.
Join us in this mission and live a life just as enriched.
