VP Leni was accompanied by Pasig City Mayor Vico Sotto, as well as representatives from private sector partners that made the initiative possible in Barangay Pinagbuhatan: JCI Manila, Ligaya ng Panginoon-Youth, and PLDT Enterprise. Here, she also met the volunteer tutors for the hub, as well as one of the parents and her children who have signed up for this assistance.
Community Learning Hubs are learning facilities, set up by OVP and its partners, to support learners in their studies, through free access to computers, gadgets, equipment, and the internet, as well as tutors. This is part of BAYANIHAN e-SKWELA, the initiative that VP Leni and her office launched to extend different kinds of support for students, parents, and teachers amid the shift to distance/blended learning.
Several other sites of Community Learning Hubs opened simultaneously on Monday, including those in Caloocan City; Taytay, Rizal; Himamaylan, Negros Occidental; Lucena City; and Tabaco City, Albay. These hubs will also be available for learners in Balete, Aklan and San Jose, Camarines Sur.
