The Department of Education (DepEd) receives 2,000 tablets from Chinese Ambassador Huang Xilian during a turnover ceremony in Malacañang.
The tablets will be used for DepEd’s blended distance learning program and will benefit Last Mile Schools in far-flung areas.
The donation, to assist Filipino students and support the blended distance learning system in the country, was witnessed by Presidential Assistant on Foreign Affairs and Chief of Presidential Protocol Robert Eric Borje and DepEd Undersecretary Nepomuceno Malaluan in Malacañang.
Huang said the donation is “intended to help the Philippine students to overcome difficulties and to get better access to distance learning resources amid the pandemic.”
