To augment the blended distance learning capability of the city amid the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic, the city of Manila on Monday opened E-Skwela Hub in Barangay 585 Monday (August 31).
The e-learning hub is expected to benefit students, teachers, and parents from three schools --Malvar, Burgos, and Maceda – in Sampaloc, Manila.
Mayor Francisco "Isko Moreno" Domagoso and Vice Mayor Honey Lacuna graced the opening of the learning hub.
"We appreciate the benefits that this educational hub will bring to students, teachers and parents, especially those who have been severely affected by the pandemic, in helping them cope with the new normal of learning and conducting our classes, so that no one will be left behind," said Domagoso.
"They can use computers, access the Internet, print materials, conduct research and prepare for the upcoming classes with these hubs," the mayor added.
"Sa mga nanonood na gustong tumulong, ito ay isang tangible na project na mararamdaman ng tao (To those who want to help, this is a tangible project that the people will really appreciate)," the mayor said.
Domagoso thanked Frontrow Philippines and Ang Probinsyano party-list Representative Ronnie Ong for making the project possible.,
"Maraming-maraming salamat sa Frontrow. Kapag gobyerno, taong bayan, at negosyante ang nagtulong-tulong ay mapapagtagumpayan natin. Kaya natin magtagumpay kapag tayo ay sama-sama, tulong-tulong (Thank you so much to Frontrow. When government, the people, and businessmen work together, we will succeed.)," he said.
Students, teachers, and parents from three schools---Malvar, Burgos, and Maceda--- are expected to benefit from the e-learning hub.
