A helping hand to ALS teachers

    As schools shift to an online blended learning scheme, teachers also need to adjust to the new normal for this school year. However, this also means needing new equipment and supplies to effectively teach their students. These include both traditional schools as well as institutions using alternative learning systems (ALS).
    To help these indivudials, Cebuana Lhuillier Foundation Inc. (CLFI) is making proceeds from its call for donations on the KINDer platform available for the use of ALS teachers. The donations, coursed through the Aboitiz Foundation Inc. platform, are expected to help ALS teachers cope with the blended learning scheme implemented by the Department of Education (DepEd).
    “I am glad that our advocacies are able to adapt to what our stakeholders currently need, and truly help those who have difficulty adjusting to the new normal,” said Jean Henri Lhuillier, president and CEO of Cebuana Lhuillier.
    The donations will be used to equip teachers with a laptop unit, a printer, a projector, and a screen to help them adapt to DepEd’s learning continuity plan which includes the digitalization of teaching modules used for instruction.
    “This recalibration of our thrust for call for donations comes at a most opportune time because we can only be sure that no student is left behind once we guarantee that no teacher is left behind,” said Jonathan Batangan, CLFI executive director.
    KINDer is Aboitiz Foundation’s advocacy crowdfunding website which houses various advocacy campaigns in the country. Through a few clicks, KINDer users can browse through the different campaigns and donate towards supporting their chosen advocacies.
