School Year 2021/2022

Dear Young Focus friends,

Greetings from Manila!

In one way it’s perhaps a bit strange to say that we're excited about the new school year 2021/2022, as we’re facing huge learning issues and challenges in the educational establishment at this Covid time. The schools are still closed in the Philippines and, for the new school year, our students again have to rely on the online systems and written modules of distance learning.

Nevertheless, we learnt a lot last school year and were somehow able to adapt. Our staff have become creative with online classes and have developed more techniques in streaming lessons which keep the students' attention. So many young people in the Philippines have lacked a proper education these last 18 months, but we are doing our best to fill the gaps, giving coaching to our beneficiaries as well. Not only the children but also their parents are given extra education through life skills sessions, including even, for example, instructions on how to use Google Meet on their cell phones. Although throughout the different lockdowns and restrictions the children have been prohibited from leaving home, adults are allowed to visit our centers, so we have been able to meet with the parents in small groups.

Young Focus has just launched a new campaign. We want to support the children and give out PREPAID internet cards so that they can load their mobile phones and ‘surf to their schools’, as well as attend Young Focus online tutorials. Free PREPAID cards will not only practically help them, but will also motivate and encourage them to participate in their online lessons and not be left out of the educational system. See link below for more information.

Thank you so much for your continuing support! We will stay in touch!

Paul
