The partnership between RC Makati and the Office of the Vice President that merges the Club’s RCM Learning Center and the OVP’s Community Learning Hub received an affirmative boost on January 21st when Pres. Peter Manzano & First Ann Pam joined Vice President Leni Robredoon a visit to two of the facilities in Lucena, Quezon. The objective of the visits, both unannounced, was to personally observe the operations of the Centers and how the students are making use of the devices and modules in the blended learning environment.The two facilities are recipients of the Club’s donation of 117 Dell desktop computers to the OVP last December—five units serving some 139 learners in Brgy. Talao-Talao and seven units supporting over 151 students in Brgy. Cotta.The hubs are designed to assist learners who have no access to the educational materials, devices and internet connectivity required for distance learning. The hubs are manned by volunteers who conduct regular tutorial lessons for the students; operations are supported by the barangay, which shoulders the cost of utilities like electricity and internet service. RC Makati and the OVP plan to put up more RCM Learning Centers /Community Learning Hubs in places across the country to help ensure the success of the distance learning scheme.
