Help 500 Filipino Children be Literate in Computer

Help 500 Filipino Children be Literate in Computer

Summary

Based on the data, 60% of the public schools in the Philippines have at least one computer unit. The rest of the public schools in the Philippines have not even a single computer unit. This is true in poor communities and inaccessible barangays. That is why many of the public schools students living in these communities are far behind in computer knowledge compared to their counterparts who are studying in private schools in the cities and well-funded government learning institutions.

Challenge

The main issue and challenge is that while students in private schools are updated with the trends of computer advancement, the students who are living and schooling in distant barangays are very far behind in computer knowledge, and most importantly skills in computing. The gap between a well-off student and poor student in the barangay is so wide that when it comes to opportunity in computer works and competition, a student in the barangay is always behind.

Solution

This project will set up a vehicle Mobile Computer Laboratory or Mobile ComLab installed with computer laptops or desktops that can accommodate 20-25 students. The concept is to bring the computer classes to barangays free of cost for students using Mobile ComLab as the medium to be manned only by two people, the driver and the IT teacher. As long as the barangay is reachable by a four-wheel vehicle, the students in the community will have the opportunity to learn computer lessons free of cost.

Long-Term Impact

The project will educate 500 students in computing. At the micro level, it will help reduce the wide gap of computer knowledge between students in private schools and students in public schools. Hence, it will help the recipient-students to be more competitive in computer learning and hopefully improve their school performance.
