Shortage of learning module materials prompts Tarlac trader to turn Good Samaritan
TARLAC CITY—A computer store owner has donated bond paper and ink to 42 schools in Concepcion town to help them produce learning modules for students.
Jess Yanga Jr., 30, owner of JY Vision Onestop IT Services, said each school can get as many as 10 reams of bond papers.
Aside from the initial 42 schools, other schools in the towns of Bamban and Capas were also be given the same donations. Some Aeta students are registered in those schools.
He also distributed printer ink to schools which have yet to receive bond papers.
Yanga started his charity work after learning that most of his customers, who work for the Department of Education, have been reeling from a shortage of bond papers, inks and printers for their learning modules.
Among the first beneficiaries of Yanga’s project were public schools and those offering Alternative Learning System.
“I just would like to help students who are financially incapable of supporting their schooling during this pandemic,” he said.
“My business is still surviving so this is my way of giving back because of all the blessings I’ve been receiving,” he said.
Yanga had also given discounts to Mark Anthony Perez, a loca programmer who repairs laptops for free.
