This program is aimed at allowing students who lack the gadgets or the internet connections find a place for distance and blended learning — modes of education pursued by the government to avoid COVID-19 transmissions — to be able to continue studying and complying with requirements.

“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,” OVP said in a statement on Tuesday.

“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,” it added.

This is one of the several programs created by Robredo and OVP during the pandemic, aside from free shuttles and dormitories for frontliners, and donation drives to buy personal protective equipment and coronavirus testing kits.
