As Philippine schools shift to distance learning to curb the spread of coronavirus disease (COVID-19), many students struggle with access to technology.

In a now-viral photo, a grade 10 student from Naga City, Camarines Sur was seen doing her modules on a bridge by the Naga River late at night on Tuesday, June 1.

Carla Rodores’ photos were shared on Facebook by Essel Bermundo, who is her fellow resident in Zone 7, Sagrada Familia, Barangay Peñafrancia.

Bermundo said Rodores was doing her modules while using free WiFi from a hotel nearby the river.

“[This] is an eye-opener to everyone that this situation does exist,” Bermundo wrote.

After her post went viral, Bermundo shared Naga City Mayor Nelson Legacion offered to install free public WiFi in 28 barangays in the city, including Barangay Peñafrancia

“Diyos na ang bahalang gumanti sainyong lahat. Ako ay may kamalayan na itong problema ay napapanahon at may kaugnayan sa hinaharap ng lahat ng kabataan at estudyante sa buong bansa. Ako ay umaasa na sa pamamagitan ng social media, ako ay may magagawa, narito ulit, na mabuksan ang paksa tungkol sa pagpapataw ng libreng Public WiFi sa buong peregrino ng ciudad ng Naga. At ako at napakinggan (God will bless you. I know that this problem is timely and relevant to the current experience of the youth and students in the country. I am hoping that through social media, I will be able to open the topic about the installment of free public WiFi in Naga City. And I was listened to),” Bermundo said.

“Sana naman, sa mas lalong madaling panahon, mangyari na at maipatupad na ang pagkakaroon ng public WiFi sa buong Naga. Maraming salamat po sa lahat ng tumulong, tumutulong, naki-basa, naki-share at nakialam (Hopefully soon we can finally use the free public WiFi in Naga. Thank you so much to everyone who helped and cared to read and shared the post).”
